It’s two days into the new year. The great controversy still rages. Our God (and our adversary) are ever the same. And I have but one simple, short thought, directly quoting the Bible. As you read, think about each sentence; answer each question. Paul speaking (Romans 8:31-39 ESV):
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
As it is written,
‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Even if we, in our free choice, choose to go another way, His incredible love will remain. For me, no cost is too high in order to maintain a relationship with Him. Let’s hang on to Him, and of course, He will hold us fast. (There’s a beautiful song about that, right here.)
If God is for us, who can be against us? Nobody. Nothing at all. Beautiful, isn’t it? ❤️
