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!  

With Love,
Paper Sunday

Thank you for this timing reminder. I really needed to hear this as i feel distant from God. It’s true that He is always there for us and His love is made perfect in our weaknesses, and nothing can separate us from His love. I believe that once we fall short in our spiritual walk everything else in our lives falls apart, i have noticed this in my life and need to get back to following God fulltime. Thank you for the devotion. God bless

I had a dear friend who now is in heaven that used to say “If you don’t feel close to God, guess who moved!” When I don’t do my devotions, it is so easy to skip them….I flounder and feel lost. I need to be constantly in tune with Him.

i needed to be reminded of this today. i’m going through a season of loss and life change that makes me feel isolated and lost. i’m constantly reminded of Gods mercy, grace and persistent pursuit. Romans 8 really spoke to me today. Also have been reading Psalm 30. Thank you for sending these every day.
