At church today our vacancy pastor preached on Romans 8:28-39, about how nothing can separate us from the love of God. Pastor Lee has worked in many disaster situations. This morning he spoke and shared pictures about working at ground zero after 9/11. His stories brought tears to the eyes of many. I still cannot believe that it was nearly 10 years ago. We will never forget.
The point that Pastor Lee was making was that NOTHING can separate us from God’s love. On earth we have so many WHY questions. Of course we do! Just look at the news! Why do bad things happen? Why is there evil, hate, despair, depression, addiction, etc.? Why? We don't understand.
Our WHY questions are answered with a WHO.
We need to look at WHO our God is! Our God is sovereign, all powerful, loving and mighty to save. We will never understand why things happen the way they do on this side of heaven, but we can TRUST in WHO our God is. He is faithful and will NEVER leave us. There is NOTHING so terrible that you can do that can stop God from loving and forgiving you. There is not a rock bottom deep enough that can keep God from you. God can use even the most terrible circumstances for His glory.
We will not just survive, we will be victorious. With God we are CONQUERORS.
This was exactly what I needed to hear today.
