Chapter 8 of Romans is such a beautiful chapter! I really needed to read it again. It needs to sink in. The Spirit helps me in my weakness. God works in all things for my good, and that ultimate good is to conform me to the likeness of Jesus! O to look like Jesus!
Have I been squirming too much? Fretting about life and wondering where God is?
God saved me, gave me his Spirit and will also graciously continue to bless me. The condemnation and charges against me aren't from God. They are lies. God has justified me. Jesus is interceding for me. Even trouble and hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness and sword, will not separate me from God's love. In all these bad things, in all the hard stuff I've been through, I am more than a conqueror through Jesus. Nothing will separate me from the love of God. Not anything!
So then...I guess God still loves me! Whew! That is such a relief and so motivating! He is still working and maybe could even more if I would just relax, right?!
Thank you, God!
