Thought for the Day #332
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written,
"For Thy sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Many are going through trials and tribulations far beyond their ability to comprehend. Perhaps you feel that you cannot bare the trauma that you are experiencing.
Let this Scripture build your faith; give you strength both physically and spiritually, in an hour that seems hopeless. Remember that whether we face life or death, our Lord is our salvation and deliverer.
He is there to see us through the valley of the shadow of death or cause us to lie down in restful peace beside the still waters of his tranquility. Nothing on this earth, no pain or tragedy, not even death, can separate us from his love and keeping power.
Put your faith in Jesus. He will see you through those times that are so intense and over whelming. Let your faith propel you into his loving arms. Our Lord knows what we face. He has suffered for us that we might be preserved in his righteousness forever.
Heavenly Father, I feel that I canít go on. My heart is broken and my strength is gone. I am tormented with both emotional and physical pain. It seems that I am brought down to the pit of despair. Help me Oh God. Preserve me for your glory. I come to you as my fortress of protection and strength. I claim your promise that nothing can separate me from you. I need you, Lord. Preserve me in my hour of trial. I pray in the name of Jesus, my Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
