“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life,…nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” Romans 8:37-39, ESV.
Through the fire, through the tough times, that try to separate you from God’s love, you find He’s faithful and still right there. When He says nothing can separate you from His love, He means it.
His love is what He wants you to receive today. His love is what He wants to use to strengthen you and find joy in. You can’t stop now. He’ll be good to you not based on performance, but because He loves you. He’ll be merciful and gracious to you because He loves you. You won’t find a better Friend than Jesus, and you are more than a conqueror because God’s great, unfailing love will literally pull you through.
We try not to talk like this as men, and we want to be strong, when all the time, His love is what picks us up and inspires us to keep going.
Prayer: Father, I praise You, and I receive Your love for me. It’s never over because of your love. In tough times or mess-ups, You still love me. You did the greatest act of love be giving Your son for me. I won’t stop now. I am more than a conqueror, and Your love will pull me through. Thank you, Jesus! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
