Resting in God’s love for you
Romans 8:35-39 New Living Translation (NLT)
35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[a]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
Sometimes when you go through trials and tribulations you tend to forget about the everlasting nature of God’s love. Scripture tells us that faith, hope and love are three things that will last forever and love is the greatest. This goes to show that God’s love is a constant and is above all, and the greatest of all. We need to see beyond pain, beyond suffering, beyond anguish, beyond fear and look at God’s love. Not letting our condition validate God’s love but letting God’s love validate our conditions, seeing that God loves you beyond the trials and the pain and wants you to simply trust in His love.
#pray Lord teach me to rest in your love for me, and to see that through thick and thin, your love remains the same
