Romans 8:38-39 NIV | “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
This is the assurance we have from our Heavenly Father: Nothing can separate us from His love.
Does He have the same assurance that nothing can stop us from loving Him?
Will we serve Him even if He doesn’t give us the exact blessings we desire within our own time frame?
Will we continue seeking Him if we haven’t found Him after a few odd years?
Will our desire for loving Him reduce if He isn’t playing ball the way we want Him to?
Will we stick with Him even when He delays our gratification?
Habakkuk 3:17-18 NIV | “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.”
If anyone has allowed unanswered prayers and delays distract from loving God, come back and be restored in His presence.
If the burdens of living has shifted anyone’s focus away from the Lord, come back and be restored in His presence.
If the yoke of godly consecration is making anyone think twice about serving the Lord, come back and be restored in His presence.
The way we crave God’s assurance, His manifestations, tokens of His goodness and love, is the exact same way He delights in us loving Him back and staying with Him.
Because God can be lonely when His people abandon the fountain of His presence in search of worldly wealth, possession of which is not evidence of intimacy with Him.
So, let’s guard our consecration. Let’s protect our love for God. Let’s prioritise intimacy with Him because He is the ONLY one that truly matters.
Declare today: Dear Lord Jesus, nothing will ever come between us.
