Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 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.
When our faith is tested by trials and heartache, we often question God’s love for us. I mean if God Loves me, why would He allow so much pain into my life? The Devil tested Job with the expected end to be, that Job would curse God to His face. Yet he trusted the Lord throughout his grief and suffering. Job questioned why God would allow him to be born and wondered where he could find the Lord, but God’s love never came into question.
The above passage of Scripture forcefully states that Nothing will ever separate us from the love of God. The Apostle Paul knew what the trials of life were all about. He suffered mostly because of his love and ministry for the Lord. Yet, he knew that his sufferings was not as a result of a lack of love on God’s part, but they were situations he had to endure to show God’s love to others in the midst of his suffering. He even says that, in the midst of our trials we are more than conquerors through Christ.
When we decide to question God’s love through our trials, we will miss out on the overcoming power we need to make it through those trials. God will give us an abundance of grace and strength to endure. Not only that, but will surround us in His great love.
Don’t question God’s love in the middle of a fire fight!! Run to Him, and allow Him to show you His love and comfort in our times of trial. Always remember, that nothing shall ever separate you from His love!!! Including and especially our trials.
