During this continued time of quarantine and isolation to best stop the spread of COVID-19, it is hard to not feel lonely and anxious.
Does it feel like your foundation has been shaken? Are you having a difficult time in this constant uncertainty?
I want to remind you this day…
You are not alone and it is completely understandable to feel anxious! Don’t beat yourself up.
Rather lean on God’s Word. I heard Romans 8 recited during a beautiful worship experience and the passage spoke to me in a fresh way.
Allow this reminder of what is unshakable and certain to bring peace to your mind and hope to your soul.
Romans 8:31-39 MSG
So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?
And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us?
There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture… None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us.
I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
