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 thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Romans 8
The Romans 8 promise in scripture is that we will never be separated from the love of God.
The purpose of the cross is that our sin frailty or humanity can never separate us from the love of God.
Why then sometimes do we feel separated from Him?
When our perception of the presence of God is dimmed we can feel the love of God has grown dim.
We can’t become alienated from him because of what we do or don’t do If we are in earnest pursuit of him.
In his presence is the fullness of our joy. (Psalm 16)
The pursuit of God and his presence is a life work.
As we become more self-disciplined we are less willing to skip bible study, prayer or worship time. We come to understand it is our covering & our hiding place and that if we stray from these practices too long we will feel it!
Thank you God that you conquered and removed any space between the two of us at the cross. You moved heaven and earth so I could stay close to you and experience your love. God today help me to remember that feelings aren’t facts!
