Romans 8:34-40 (AMP)
Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us? Who shall ever separate us from Christ's love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God’s love is constant. It is unchanging. No matter where you are or what you are going through God’s love for you and in you is unvarying and pure. It is impossible for the love of God to be defiled or corrupt. The scriptures declare in 1 John that God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. God is not good one day and evil the next. God is good all the time, Hallelujah!
• To move two or more people or things away from each other, or prevent people or things from coming into contact with each other.
• To stand or lie between one person or thing and another.
The devil will try to come and sit right in between your love relationship with God. He will try to use deceptive devices to divide and conqueror. He will send storms and chaos, mishap and confusion, life threatening diseases, doubt and distress, all in an attempt to separate you from love. The devil is a liar, everything he says, yes, everything, is a lie. Lies from the enemy are sent to steal, kill and destroy from you. They are sent to stand between you and love to prevent fellowship and communion. However, don’t forget, God’s love is greater.
Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love, the scripture says. Nothing and no one can ever separate you from God’s love. Now notice the writer did not say, “Who shall ever separate you from God’s blessings, wealth, health, protection, power, wisdom, strength, joy, peace, provision, presence, gifts, callings, life, light, etc? Perhaps he used love because all these other things are branches of love. When love is the root, all these other things are the fruit. All good things flow out of one source, Love.
In the mist of whatever kind of suffering, affliction or test or trial, remember that, greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. What is in you? God is in you and God is Love. Love never fails, therefore in every situation you are more than a conqueror through Love. So be fully persuaded, beyond all doubt, about your victory. Love will endure without weakening. When the storms of life rage, know that after the last drop of rain and hail, the last howl of the wind, love will still be standing tall victorious in the end.
Take time daily to cultivate and develop a life total yielded and controlled by Love. Love is the answer to every question your heart will seek to ask God.
No, love never does fail, we can apply it to every situation*ReplyDelete
