PRAYER: Please pray for a few unspoken prayer requests in our Monday Night Worship group.
DEVOTION: “No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:39
One of my favorite verses. So much so that I based one of my songs on it. The Love of Jesus from my album, The Walk. Love the song and the message.
I particularly like this translation and the wording. No power in the sky above or the earth below will be able to separate us from God’s love.
Pretty much covers it all. Yet, we build these little walls that get in the way…at least in our minds. Our sin, we feel guilty about it and give it the power to dictate our relationship with God. Ever feel this way? Some small, stupid sin that keeps coming up, recurring in your life. You feel helpless to beat it so you think that maybe God is not all there, not wanting you to win here.
Stop giving it the power. Instead lean on the promise of God that says that nothing on earth will separate us from His love. No sin, no doubt, no fear, no anxiety or disappointment. Nothing will separate us from Him.
Remember that. Embrace that. Live in and with that promise today.
