Romans 8:37-39 (NIV)
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 (MSG)
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” -AMPLIFIED
Oh that amazing, tenacious love of the Father extended to His children. His love for us cannot be detoured, cannot be swayed, and cannot be lost, not by anything. Because of this amazing, immutable, changeless love we can be more than conquerors in this present world. “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? “-Romans 8:31 (NIV) NOTHING!
God is for us! That statement in and of itself should move us to a state of wonder and humility. God is on our side! God cares overwhelmingly for us. God wants us to succeed; He wants the very best for us. “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” -Romans 8:32 (NIV)
God’s love for us is simply put, amazing. Agape love, God’s love, is an unconditional, sacrificial love; undeserved and unmerited favor. Case in point: “But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8 (AMP)
The fact is; God loved us from the very start. He knew about us before we were even born and He wanted us as His very own. He knew that we would be sinful and reject His ways. Yet, He chose to love us just the same. That is some pretty loyal love; faithful and true, even when we were not faithful and true to Him.
“We strangely misjudge the love of God. We think that our distresses and sufferings, our sins and failures, may make Him love us less, whereas they will draw Him nearer, and make his love exert itself more evidently and tenderly. In the home, it is not the troop of sturdy children that so engross the mother’s care, as the puny withered life that has lain in the cot for the last eleven years, unable to help itself and reciprocate her love. And in the world, death and pain, disease and sorrow, failure and sin, only draw God nearer, if that be possible. So far from separating from his love, they bind us closer.” -F.B. Meyer ( Paul A Servant of Jesus Christ)
Lest we give up and despair in the battle of our life; let us always remember that Our God is for us and nothing can ever separate us from His love!
Father, your love is marvelous and out of this World; like nothing else in my life. You are loyal, faithful and true; never changing. No matter what I do, your love remains constant and true. To know this truth is humbling and comforting at the same time. Nothing at all will ever be able to separate me from that overwhelming, wondrous love that you have for me. All I can say is thank you! All I can do is weep for joy! All I can do is humbly praise your name; for you are magnificent and overwhelmingly loving to me.
