Verse of the Day – Romans 8:39

Romans 8 is a power packed chapter and one of my favorites!

This has been quite the week and a very tumultuous past 24 hours, so this verse was one that I definitely wanted to read within the context of the surrounding verses.

I pray it also encourages you this morning!

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?

(As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” )

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

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.

Romans 8:35‭-‬39 NLT

    Seeing today’s verse of the day made me so very happy!!!!

    It’s a VERY familiar verse.

    In fact, it’s a verse that I shared earlier this month while at my husband’s hospital beside. 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

    It’s moments like this that give me better understanding of the songs my church mothers used to sing. In particular, these lyrics come to mind,

    🎶’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to take Him at His Word
    Just to rest upon His promise,
    Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

    Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
    How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
    Oh, for grace to trust Him more!…🎶
