But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, not angels, nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers nor height, nor depth nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
This truth in God’s Word is a lifeline for me! I know this truth is unchanging. Because of this knowledge I do not despair at this moment in the history of our once great nation. Everything we have loved as true Americans is now being stripped from us. Law and order is no longer an option. Truth is covered up in lies, embraced by tyrants who have taken over our country. As for us who still care for what is right we must wholly turn to the One who is truth. We must cling to the One Leader whose promises will be kept not only on this earth, but eternally.
We who were blessed to be born in America, a land of the free are beginning to suffer persecution for our faith in God. We are a people who will always win! We know our eternal future. It is safe and very secure. Nothing and no one can separate us from the God we serve who is love. That power is greater than any power on earth or in the universe. His love reigns through Jesus Christ, His Son who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is exalted above all. What we have through Christ cannot be taken from us. There is no power above the love of God that reconciled us to Himself through Jesus — His sacrificial Lamb and our Savior.
Take comfort today brothers and sisters in Christ. This is not our home. We are only passing through. Colossians 3:1-4 states:
“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are of this earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you will also be revealed with Him in glory.”
With all the negative news we are bombarded with daily of our circumstances on this earth, take a moment and set your eyes upon the truth of God’s Word which will never change. Never! “Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will never pass away.” Matthew 24:35
Heed the Words of God which is an unchanging truth. Nothing can be done against eternal truth. Sadly we seem to feel a greater need to stay informed of all the lies and deception flowing through our airways daily. We check our devices first thing in the morning rather than reading His Words. Let us determine to change that and to stay informed of what He wants to say to you daily first thing in your morning. It will change your life! You will become light in this darkened world. We either become part of the problem, or part of the only solution. Choose well!
In His love.
