“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?” Romans 8:35
My anger boiled into rage and I squirmed, attempting to wriggle free from his grasp. I needed to push him away, spit in his face, curse at him, and run. However by way of my tantrum, God’s heat countenance by no means modified. His grip held me agency.
I nonetheless don’t absolutely perceive this expertise after my dad died in a automotive accident once I was 9. Within the aftermath, I lay alone on the household room sofa and, in a imaginative and prescient, Jesus sat beside me and gently put his hand on my again, then scooped me into his arms.
What caught with me wasn’t my venom towards Jesus, however his response. Unchanging. Loving. Fixed and current. He didn’t chide me for my emotional outburst. He let me really feel it and specific it.
The expertise introduced a wealthy biblical reality to life for me: Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:39). Nobody can snatch his youngsters from his hand (John 10:28). He won’t ever depart or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).
Maybe there’s something you’re afraid to convey to God. A deep wound, a nagging query, or doubt. The passages referenced above overwhelmingly state that nothing will trigger the Lord to push you away. Even we aren’t sturdy sufficient to interrupt his grip.
Lord, thanks for the promise that these whom you draw to your self won’t ever be separated from you. Present me what I could be holding again from you due to worry, and assist me to attract close to to You boldly and securely, bringing you all the things. In Christ’s identify, amen.
