I got some disappointing news this week. It’s been weighing on my heart. At the same time this week, I have been meditating on God’s love. So my struggle all week has been which reality am I going to let define me. It’s been a struggle. God and I have had some serious discussions. I’ve told him I’m disappointed. He said “Trust me.” I’ve told him I’m angry. He said, “I love you.”
This morning, as I continue meditating on His love for me, I realize He is inviting me to trust His love for me. My circumstance may be a fact but the truth is:
If God is for me, what circumstance can be against me?
He gave me His Son, He will give me all things.
Christ is interceding on my behalf.
In trials, in hardships, in trouble, I am more than a conqueror because He loves me.
My circumstance, nothing in the present, nor nothing in the future will ever separate me from the love of God.
So today, I allow His love for me to define my reality. I rest in His love, knowing all things will work together for my good.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:37-39 NIV
