I Am Convinced

I Am Convinced

27 May 2009

Scripture:

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 NLT)

Paul lived his life free from the fear of death, free from the desire to acquire, free from the need to succeed, free from the press to impress. Paul was satisfied with the approval of God and was convinced that nothing could separate him from God’s love expressed in Jesus Christ.

I am convinced that God loves me unconditionally and everlastingly. Therefore, like Paul, I am convinced that the following things cannot – now or ever – separate me from his love:
• Neither death nor life – can separate me from his love.
• Neither angels nor demons – can separate me from his love.
• Neither fears for today nor worries about tomorrow – can separate me from his love.
• Powers of hell – cannot separate me from his love.
• Neither powers in the sky above nor in the earth below – can separate me from his love.
• Nothing in all creation can separate me from his love.

God’s love for me is unconditional and irrevocable. Of this I am convinced.

Prayer:

Father, I choose to believe that you love me unconditionally and everlastingly. I am convinced of your love for me. Please help me think, speak, and act out of that conviction and never out of fear, doubt, and uncertainty. I am convinced. Amen.
