Does it Mean God Doesn’t Love Us if We Are in Difficulty? (Praise Your Way Day 4)

Today’s Reading

“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 8:38-39.


Reflection

When we’re in difficult times, does it mean God no longer loves us? Does it mean He no longer cares for us if we have trouble, or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry (in debt), or destitute (have no home), or in danger(threatened with eviction or loss of job)?

The answer is capital “NO.”

God is with us even when we’re passing through the waters, through the rivers, and through the fire. He says we won’t get overwhelmed or scorched because He will be with us (Isaiah 43:2).

We can take the WORD of God and His promises to the bank and they won’t fail. So we can praise Him no matter what.

As quoted earlier in Romans, God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners, how much more other things? (Rom. 5:8).

If you ever worry that God doesn’t love you, remember the cross. There we see the love of God poured out, a love not just for humankind in general, but for us in particular.

Now, with the assurance of God’s love for us, we are empowered to approach whatever situation we find ourselves with faith and a heart full of praise.


Songs of the Day

1. Jesus Loves Me by Chris Tomlin

2. In Control by Hillsong

 


A Prayer of Praise

“Dear Heavenly Father, when my heart is in doubt, remind me by Your Spirit that You made Your LOVE manifest in allowing Jesus Christ, Your only begotten son, to die for us.

Take away my doubts and fill my mind with YOUR love and passion.

Cause me to stand strong in faith and praise at all times.

Remind me that You rest within my heart.

And that Your gentle hand stretches over me even through the storm clouds.

LORD, teach me patience, to wait and listen for your words, and to hold onto Your promises, as I praise forever and ever..

 In Jesus name.
