“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
Hello everyone, I pray you all and your families are well!! Here is our interactive scripture study for today. As I mentioned before, an interactive scripture study, will help us be more proactive with our daily scripture reading; it is a deeper study of the scriptures, it also helps us to pray the scriptures, and meditate on them better. Therefore, let’s DIVE into the Word of God!! Are you ready? Let’s go!!
Today our scripture is from Romans 8:35-39 (TLB) which says, “35 Who then can ever keep Christ’s love from us? When we have trouble or calamity, when we are hunted down or destroyed, is it because he doesn’t love us anymore? And if we are hungry or penniless or in danger or threatened with death, has God deserted us? 36 No, for the Scriptures tell us that for his sake we must be ready to face death at every moment of the day—we are like sheep awaiting slaughter; 37 but despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us. 38 For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.”
What is YOUR observation of Romans 8:35-39 (TLB)? What do YOU see?
What is YOUR prayer from Romans 8:35-39 (TLB)?
What we go through does not dictate who we are, and it does not mean God is not with us or that He does not love us. God is and will be forever present in our lives. Now is the time, TODAY, make that choice to not ALLOW ANYTHING to separate us from God’s love. Because GOD said there is NOTHING that happens, that could EVER separate us from HIS love – God loves us with an EVERLASTING LOVE! God doesn’t leave people, people leave God! And then they ask, “Where is God?” Therefore, WE must partner with God, and become committed to trusting Him, NO MATTER WHAT, and not ALLOW ANYTHING we GO THROUGH, to separate us from God’s love for us, through Christ; to cause us to doubt God’s love for us!! God PROVED HIS love for us, by sending His Son Jesus to die for us (v39), while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8 - TLB) – now that’s love! Jesus FREELY laid His life down for us because He loves us!! Remember, storms in our lives are going to come and go, people in our lives are going to come and go BUT God will NEVER leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:8 – TLB).
