Time with God - Dec. 13, 2010
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?…I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God's love is dependable!
If you have begun a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, then you have an anchor for your soul that will hold you steady no matter what you face in life.
No matter what person on earth rejects you, there is One who will "never leave you, nor forsake you" (Joshua 1:5). No matter what things crumble away beneath your feet, you will find that "underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deuteronomy 33:27). No matter how many of the things you once found security in suddenly disappear into clouds and darkness, the lighthouse of God's Word will always shine this message into your heart—"I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you" (John 14:18).
Even if you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death, He will be with you every step of the way. This makes you different from every person who does not have Jesus Christ.
The love of God. You can depend on it.
