Romans 8:39 Nothing can separate us from the love of God pic

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us. Romans 8: 38-39 (MSG)

I thought I’d take a look back at some of the places where God has met me over the last few years. This is part of my attempt to remember the hard places that God meets us in

Today, I’m focusing on the times when God has reminded me that I am loved by him, seen by him, and that nothing can ever change the way he feels about me. 

For the times when you feel invisible, know that God has remembered you and he’s searching for you, longing to bring you back and he’s painting the sky reminders of his promises to you.

For the moments when you feel like an outcast: God says, “Come sit with me, you are one of the family.” You are no longer called an outcast and a wanderer but a citizen with God’s people, a member of God’s holy family, and a resident of His household.

If you feel crippled by your past: God is looking beyond that to your future.  He is giving you what you need for the right now and enough to take care of you into the future.

As I look back at a few of the places and moments where God has reminded me of his presence and love I’m convinced that there is no loophole, no getting round the fact that you belong with God and to God. 

And you are loved by God. (tweet this)

If you remember nothing else, remember this: 
Nothing, absolutely nothing can get between you and God’s love because of the way that Jesus has embraced you. (tweet this)
