“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39.
Am I walking in this truth or am I holding myself back from trusting that God has the best for me? Paul asks this rhetorical question in verse 31 “What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us”? After he asks this question he then moves into one of the most powerful statements of truth in the Bible. We are more than a conqueror; the word means absolutely and unequivocally victorious. He states that not one thing can keep me from God and His love.
Then question then is when I am in a battle, what is my mindset? Am I walking in a defeatist attitude or do I have an expectation of God walking me through this trial to bring healing and restoration and revelation of His love and Glory.
Have I let fear and trepidation wear me down? Am I walking in the joy and the love of God knowing that Jesus Christ has done the work on the cross and he has called to walk through this trial to bring Him honor and glory?
Today, let us look at what is keeping us from walking with Christ in the mindset of what Peter writes “you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 2:5. Let us ask God what is holding us back from the deep knowing that we cannot be separated from the Love of God. Be blessed as you go out in the confidence of knowing that truth in your heart today. Amen.
