Romans 8:38-39 NLT
"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 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."
This verse should convince us that we are loved by the Lord. His love overcomes our hurts and failures. His love protects us from our own worries and fears. Our human doubts, our fears can try (or should I say attempt to try), to put space between us and God. We can become like Thomas (John 20: 24-29) and doubt can turn us into our own worst enemy. Doubt can make us question what we believe is true. God sees through our doubt and He sees us. The Lord sees us and He loves us. He understands that doubt can exist in us. He understands our fear of the unknown and knows that the unseen can pull at and cause struggles within our minds. When those times come, we can fall back on these verses and our knowledge, our deep understanding, that God loves us. We can face the difficulties, the unknowns that may cause the fear, the doubt that pushes into our circumstances, our worries about what tomorrow might bring; all of it, because we know we are loved. We can face it because we are convinced that 'nothing can separate us from the love of God'. Nothing. No thing. Nothing at all. Nothing ever. We are loved. Even when we feel unloved or unloveable, we are loved by God. Nothing can come between us and the love of God. Nothing. No thing. Nothing at all. Nothing ever. We are truly, dearly and deeply loved by God. Forever. Forever loved.
