Sometimes when we show our own little pity party and listen to the lies of our enemy “God doesn’t love you or He wouldn’t have let this happen to you”. We believe God doesn’t love us. I mean how could He love us when this or that has happened… we listen to the thoughts, however it is when we stand on the Word that results in overcoming faith and puts out the lies. God actually let this happen to us to make us strong, to make us depend upon Him, to strengthen our walk with Him to help others. It is all a part of His plan for our lives. We don’t base our lives on powerful feelings or emotions in which we feel at any given time but trust God with His Word.
My thoughts are centered around the last part of Romans 8. If God is on our side, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son for us but gave him up for us all…Who then will condemn us? Will Christ? No! He is the one who died for us and came back to life again for us!… Who can ever keep Christ’s love from us? When we have troubles or trials, or when people turn against us, is it because he doesn’t love us anymore? No! If we are hungry or broke, in danger or threatened with death, has God deserted us? No! Victory is ours because through Christ who loved us enough to die for us. Nothing can separate us from the love God has for us! NOTHING! Death cannot, life cannot, angels can’t and all the power of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries for tomorrow, where we are at the moment, there is nothing that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.
You see God loves! He loves you, He loves me and nothing…. NOTHING…. will ever be able to separate His love from us. He is not mad or angry at us, He loves us. His love goes beyond what we can comprehend. Regardless of what the enemy throws our way, we must filter it through the Spirit, look to the Word to determine truth and stand through the circumstance regardless of what we are feeling or hearing the enemy say.
When you are feeling down or trying to determine IF God truly loves you… remember His Word… there is NOTHING that can separate you from His love, now that is strong love. That is the kind of love that cast out all fear. That is the love that is pure. That is the love that shows forgiveness. That is the love we all should show, have and have overflowing in our lives. 🙂
