Nothing Shall Separate Us From the Love of God
Listening this song by Reuben Kigame, “Avula” reminds me of Romans 8:38,39, 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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
When the apostle Paul wrote the above verses, he had been facing grueling times because he was a Christian. He had suffered rejection from friends, persecution from the government, and had spent many months of his life in an isolated prison cell. But regardless of what people or the circumstances of life did to him, Paul had discovered a vital truth: Nothing that occurs in this life has the power to separate a believer from the love of God. Same thing happens to us, we suffer rejection from friends and family just because of sickness, loss of a job, death, persecution but regardless, we need to remind ourselves, that nothing should separate us from the love of God.
It is a fact that many believers feel overwhelmed by the situations they face in life. In fact, they often feel so confused and weighed down that they wonder if God is still near to them. This is precisely why Paul adds that even life cannot separate a believer from the love of Jesus Christ.
But Paul doesn’t stop with the things that presently exist. He goes on to say that “things to come” are also not able to separate a believer from the love of God. The latest COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the whole world to the core, from businesses to health, we are all filling the heat. It’s always easy in such a time to lose focus and thinking that God does not exist. The Greek word used here is from the word mello, and it describes events that will occur in the future. These are things that haven’t happened yet, but will take place in the days and years to come. Paul has already said that nothing currently existing is strong enough to separate a believer from the love of God. Now he boldly declares that nothing will ever happen in the future that will contain enough power to hinder a believer from knowing and experiencing God’s love.
Never forget this message Paul proclaimed. Nothing in this world has enough power to disconnect you from the love of God. No angel, no demon, no government, no creature and no mistake of your own making will ever be capable of cutting you off from the love of God. God’s love is greater than man will ever be able to comprehend. It reaches to the highest mountain, and it penetrates to the lowest parts of the earth. Regardless of what you are facing in your life today, God’s love is with you and nothing will ever be able to disconnect you from this awesome, powerful, all-consuming love!
Lets pray: Lord, I am so thankful for Your love that never fails me and never deserts me. I am filled with gratitude that nothing in this world has the power to disconnect me from Your awesome, powerful, life-changing love. In moments when I feel overwhelmed by circumstances or problems, I ask that You give me a special awareness of Your unfailing love in my life. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
