Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Do you feel all alone?
There is nothing in the heavens above nor under the earth, no creature, nor demonic influence that can separate you from the love of God. This is important to understand because the spiritual warfare you encounter in your everyday life, as a believer, is very real. The more mature in Christ you get, as you draw closer to the Lord, the more aware you will be. You will even begin to discern the tricks and traps of the enemy before he can spring them. Though you see him at work, you also have to know he won’t win. It is not you or any power or authority you have. It is the love of God and the power and authority He has.
Romans 8:31, 35-37 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (New King James Version)
There is no devil, no principality, or no power that can surpass the love God has for you. This is important to understand and believe because life can be overwhelming. You deal with things; situations happen in your life; and often you don’t understand why the things are happening, where the problems are coming from or what God is teaching you. The enemy will tell you lies. He wants to convince you God is angry about something you did or said and so He has left you. It is important for you to know the word of God for yourself so you can respond to the devil, just like Jesus did. It is written.
Matthew 28:20b And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (New Living Translation )
This is one of the most important weapons you have in your arsenal to pull out in times of trouble. You say, “Though it may look like I am alone or I may feel like I am alone, nothing can separate me from the love of God. I am not alone!”
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for the assurance that nothing can separate me from You. Your love holds me, binds me, and fights for me. I can hold on to You on those days when the enemy comes and tries to make me feel alone, forsaken, and lost. I know You are right there. I know You never moved. There was a time when my actions and my thoughts about my actions caused me to move. I could not or would not forgive myself and I acted like You would not forgive me either. I saw myself as unworthy, as if I could possibly be worthy any other time. I am so grateful You stopped me and called me back to You. You showed me how to get back on track and return to the place I left. You sent Jesus to die and rise again so nothing can separate You from me, not even me. It makes me want to shout. It makes me want to sing. Thank You for reminding me of this truth. Thank You for giving this to me to use in my time of trouble. Hallelujah to Your Name!…
