Nothing!


Are you ever overwhelmed by life’s circumstances? Do you feel that life is against you? St. Paul was writing from a dungeon when he penned these words:

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:37-39).

I invite you today, just for today, to say the words above aloud and right after the words, nor anything else in all creation, the thing that is creating your greatest fear. It could be cancer, the illness of a loved one, the choices of a loved one, finances. Whatever it is it cannot separate you from the abundance of God’s love.

Here you go:

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, nor _________ will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”
