One of the greatest comforts we have is the knowledge that nothing can separate us from God’s love. There is no power strong enough in life or death to take away His love from us.
Once when young granddaughter, Stephanie, was visiting, I told her not to take her juice into the living room and spill it. She said, “But if I did, you’d still love me, wouldn’t you?” She was pretty confident that I would love her anyway. The basis for our confidence in God’s love is far, far greater than that of a grandmother or of anyone else. We can be sure that, though we are undeserving, God loves us with a never-changing love.
When we are following closely to Him and honoring Him with our lives, God loves us. When we sin and hurt His heart, God loves us.
When we forget to be thankful, God loves us.
When we are not strong enough to call on Him, God loves us.
When we feel abandoned by everyone, God loves us.
Through God’s great love for us, we are more than conquerors. We do not have to be defeated by trouble or hardship or danger or problems of any other kind. We do not live in our own strength, but in the strength of all-powerful God.
Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord and will be with us always. Help us through our lives to show Your love to others.
