Hello …It has been several weeks since my last post. I hope to get back on track and share with you what the Lord has put on my heart as well as the things that have made a lasting impression in my mind and heart. Those inspirational moments come quite often through His word, songs of worship, and from the heart of other believers who desire to share their day-to-day faith with others.
This past weekend I attended a family reunion, and had the chance to get reacquainted with a number of relatives. The family banquet, which was the culminating event, was something quite special. As we updated our extended family on what was happening in our lives, more than not, God’s name was exalted. There were testimonies of healings, jobs, and other blessings, but as one relative shared in a song, God is faithful and is with us through it all. We can take comfort in this truth!
Please take a minute to mediatate on the following passage. It helps me to understand the depth of God’s love for each one of us. And, please listen to the song that follows–another reminder of this immense love!
31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]
32 He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?
33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?]
34 Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us?
35 Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?
36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.
38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
