Today at MGF I preached about the love of God and said that there was nothing that could separate us from that love.
Spiritual or physical, life and death, things in our life, people, and things in the present or future; nothing in this long list could separate us from the love of God.
Yet there was a very important caveat before this long list in that we have to be persuaded of this truth.
In other translations it says convinced, certain or sure.
Whatever Bible you read it will tell you that you need to be certain, trust in or believe this truth.
If we do not then we could feel (or have an emotion) that tells us we are separate from the love of God.
The Word says we cannot be separated from His love, so it is just a feeling when we think we are.
His love is always flowing, it is always there and it is never switched off from us.
God is love (1 John 4 v 16).
It is the character of God to continually love us, it is our thoughts, will and emotions that sometimes tell us God has turned from us and removed his love.
The truth is there is nothing we can do to get Him to love us more and nothing we can do to get Him to love us less, we simply need to be persuaded of this truth and then enjoy His love.
Enjoy that love today, thank Him for that Love but please, never ask Him to love you more!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you love me unconditionally and continually”.
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
