“I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love—not life or death, not angels or spirits, not the present or the future, and not powers above or powers below. Nothing in all creation can separate us from God’s love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord!” (Romans 8: 38-39, Contemporary English Version)
Paul was convinced. He was absolutely positive of the truth in the words of this passage. God’s Love is always with us. We can’t lose its presence, escape its influence, or pass out of its tender power.
Paul wasn’t being a Pollyanna. He wasn’t putting on a happy face and saying everything would turn out okay. Paul had been through the very things that might seem to separate one from God, from good, from Truth. He had been a persecutor of others and was persecuted himself, suffered many challenges, both from the world and from within his own thought.
But Paul knew the Christ. He had experienced the Truth of man’s genuine oneness with God, that pure relationship that Jesus demonstrated so beautifully for us all. Paul recognized that while the seeming powers of the world and the presentations of the material senses would try to convince us otherwise, our connection to Spirit was absolutely a solid certainty. It was the changeless constant on which he could always rely. And so can we.
Let’s trust this Truth. It may seem like things loom in the future to fear, or that other people or governments or circumstances can rob us of Love’s presence, but this is never, ever true. God’s Love is always with us, and often even more tangibly when we are feeling beyond human help. This powerful divine Love is right where we are, and always has been—ready, full, tender, strong, and ours to feel and know.
