How great is our God

I know who goes before me. I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side. God seems to have a way of taking my greatest fears and having me work through them right now. I have another one coming up. It isn’t really a greatest fear; it is more of a really difficult thing I have no idea how to do or really what to do.

I had emotional backlash from writing about bitterness yesterday, which is pretty understandable. It seemed really vulnerable. It is really hard to face my own weakness. I do think my own emotional state is improving since I have admitted to myself that it is my own weakness I hate most. It makes me think of the line in the serenity prayer “taking this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it”. I would not have brokenness exist. I would definitely not have my brokenness exist.

I went to a support group I do not lead for the first time in several months. It felt so good to just vent and say things I could say nowhere else. Everyone needs a judgment-free zone.

I had pretty amazing God time tonight. It was the best I have had in awhile as far as enjoying His presence. I have been coming to Him for so much fixing for so long. What would happen in my life if I just came to Him for the sake of Him?

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:31-39
