God + you = an unshakeable love 💞
I’ve had the pleasure of celebrating several weddings. I love these moments of joy. In the sacrament of marriage, there is a vow spoken that’s designed to seal a couple’s love forever: “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part…”
Unfortunately, some covenants don’t last…But there is one that will never fail: the Lord’s covenant with you.
God’s love is indestructible. It is a divine promise, a sacred commitment, an eternal covenant. Just as the apostle Paul confirms here: “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (the Bible, Romans 8:38-39, NKJV)
I find Paul’s absolute certainty when he talks about the love of God to be remarkable! We could translate “I am persuaded” as “I am absolutely certain and sure,” “I am convinced,” or “I have no doubt.” This means that even in difficult times, the believer remains firm in his/her faith in God’s love.
I encourage you today to be as assured as the apostle Paul. When everything topples and collapses around you, this love is the anchor that keeps you from being capsized. No matter what you may endure, God holds you tightly in His ropes of love to prevent you from going under. Even when it feels like you’ve lost your way, if you don’t let go of His hand, God promises to lead you safely into harbor. (Read Psalm 107:23-32, NLT)
I invite you now to let the Holy Spirit deposit this unshakeable conviction inside you that nothing can ever separate you from His love:
- No circumstance, no matter how terrible it is,
- No principality or power, no spiritual authority,
- No present or future event,
- No human being.
Here’s what one “A Miracle Every Day” reader who’s going through a difficult time wrote to me: “I don’t understand God’s love for me. I call upon Him day and night, I’d like so much to hear Him, and for Him to answer me! But I know that He loves me.”
I invite you, too, to declare this: “Nothing will separate me from the love of God. I know that He loves me.”
That’s right…nothing will be able to separate you from His love!
Thanks for existing!
