For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
—Romans 8:38-39 (NKJV)
Do you believe it? Are you convinced that nothing that comes against you—no death or life situation—no power of darkness—nothing in all creation can separate you from the love of God you have received in Jesus? Nothing can separate you from the power of God's love. When you believe this Truth, you are convinced of God's love. You live the confidence that His love gives you. You persevere and believe in what you are promised.
“Endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation” (Romans 5:4, NIV).
Persevere for the promises of God. Develop a strong character that exhibits confident hope. Faith is your response to the finished work of the Cross. You choose to believe that Jesus is more than enough. If God gave His Son, won't He give you all things (Romans 8:32)? Confident hope takes root in your heart and blossoms as God's Truth transforms your spiritual understanding.
“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised” (Hebrews 10:35-36, NLT).
Hold on to God’s Truth, and claim the promises of your new life in Christ. He is the Lord who completely restores—your Healer of sin and sickness and fear and grief and every pain of life. God’s will for you is living life in the fullness of His grace. Persevere and believe by faith. You receive from the bounty of His overwhelming love for you.
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us” (2 Corinthians 1:20, NKJV).
