I’ve been meditating on the end of Romans 8 again this morning, and this passage is more than just about the love of God.
Yes, it is great telling us that we can never be separated from the love of God and it is an essential truth that we need to know.
But there is more to it than that; it speaks to me of safety and security.
Knowing that God’s love is unconditional and will never be removed breeds a feeling of safety and security.
We are safe in His love and we are secure in His love.
I can also say that if you do not feel safe and secure in your faith then there is something you are missing about God’s love for you.
If you have any fear or insecurity you need a deeper and truer understanding of the unconditional love that God has for you.
Perfect love (God’s kind of love) casts out all fear (1 John 4 v 18).
If we have any fear we do not know perfect love, and only perfect love comes from God.
Nothing will ever stop God’s perfect love; it will always be there for us.
But we can removed ourselves from this love, removed ourselves from the benefits, by lack of knowledge and lack of understanding.
Meditate upon the scriptures that talk about God’s love (1 John 4 for example) and soak in the truth that HE LOVES YOU.
Speak out these scriptures and let yourself hear that He loves you.
Tell yourself that He loves you and believe it.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you love me unconditionally and that you will always love me”.
Romans 8 v 38 and 39…..For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord
