Thought for the day #293
SAFE AND SECURE
Romans 8:38-39 (New American Standard Bible)
38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
39nor 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.
Fear and insecurity are one of the greatest detriments to a successful Christian life.
We often find ourselves bombarded by thoughts that are not wholesome. We are consumed with fear of failure. Successful living is a fleeting dream.
There are so many battles to fight, circumstances to overcome; and powers greater than we, against us. It seems absolutely impossible to live a happy overcoming life, free from care and worry.
The Scripture reminds us that God is promised to cover us with his protection. He has made it plain that there is no power on earth capable of ripping us from His covering. What a blessed truth.
Our commitment to serve the Lord Jesus Christ has sealed us in his love.
The enemy may try to bring all kinds of opposition, but shall be in vain. Nothing of the past are the future, can remove us from the love of God. No matter how great the opposition may be, nothing can separate us from our Lord Jesus Christ.
God's great arm of righteousness will uphold us. His love will sustain us. The blood of Jesus Christ shall preserve us.
Circumstances of the past, obstacles of the future, even death itself cannot steal our victorious life from us. We can live boldly, with confidence that we shall complete the course have before us. No power on earth are in the heavens is greater than the love of God.
Heavenly Father, the obstacles of life intimidates me. I become fearful of losing my relationship with you. Sometimes I do fail and make mistakes but most often, I am overwhelmed by the attacks of Satan or the problems of life. Please forgive me for my fear and insecurity. Help me to be strong and secure in your wonderful love. I pray in the name of Jesus, my Lord. Amen
