"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angles nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creations, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." NIV
"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." KJV
We cannot get down so low that God's love is not deeper still. We cannot face any trial in this life, including death, that God's love is not surrounding us and leading the way. We cannot be overcome with the mountains of stress that God's love is not pouring out peace into our souls. We cannot be threatened by any person, place, or thing that God's love is not our covering of protection. What words of comfort in a world that seeks to destroy us.
Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You for Your infinite love that keeps us from all things that would try to come between You and us. Help us to always remember, no matter what situation we are in, that Your love envelopes us and keeps us safe in Your arms. In Jesus' name, Amen.
