Believe in His love

_”For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”~ Rom 8:38-39

WHAT a bold statement from Apostle Paul! These words clearly affirm that the love of God is truly shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit given to us (Rom 5:5).

God wants us to have a deeper revelation about His love for us. And understanding God’s love will enable us reciprocate it towards Him. The love of God is a game changer. God’s love is able to liberate us from any sinful past, guilt or condemnation, once we come to Him in repentance, forsaking our old ways.

God wants us to be fully persuaded of His great love for us. He has demonstrated this great love for us by giving us His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him should have eternal life and not perish (John 3:16).

But long before the Apostles, the Old Testament prophets and men of God testified to this wonderful, unfailing love of God.

Jacob deemed himself unworthy of God’s unfailing love and faithfulness in Genesis 32:10.

God discloses that He lavishes His unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love Him and and obey His commandments (Exodus 20:6). Who can beat this?

The Prophet Jeremiah speaks of the enduring love of God. He states emphatically and conclusively, “the faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease” (Lamentations 3:22).

John, the Apostle took all of these in, and the many more testimonies and evidences of God’s wonderful kind of love; and coupled with his personal knowledge and experience – being also a beneficiary of the same, and declared emphatically and conclusively,

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us . . .!” (1John3:1).

Anyone who accepts this love offer is also empowered to love Christ. We, like the men of old, should be able to make bold statements such as we love Him because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

It’s very vital we respond to God’s love for us. We respond positively to God’s love by becoming persuaded by it; by staying committed to it; and by proclaiming it and testifying to it. Don’t ever buy into any lie that suggests that God does not care about you. It’s only meant to deceive you and to discredit God and His word.

To be persuaded of His love means to be fully convinced of it. In other words, to be sure or having confident assurance of His love. You can be convinced beyond any doubt that God’s love is unfailing and that He loves you. You and l are the objects of His love!Therefore nothing should be allowed to come between us and God; to separate us from this wonderful bond of affection.

The truth is, our love for God will continually be challenged by different situations or forces. However, we can be fully persuaded of it, and should resist any thing that would try to steal or quench our love for God which is in Christ. We are His Cherished ones, and should stay strong in His love. Our duty is to serve God with an unfeigned love because God loves us genuinely. And we also have the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ to be with us always.

Thank You dear Father, for shedding Your love abroad in our hearts by Your Spirit. I am fully persuaded of Your love for me. I walk in confident assurance of Your love. And I refuse to allow anyone or anything to separate me from Your love which is in Christ Jesus .
