Our Women's Ministry and 64 other women, just finished up Beth Moore's "Loving Well" in-house retreat this past weekend. What a blessing it was to me and so many others. We received a journal in our packet, that is a follow-up of the retreat......a study that we can do for the next four weeks.
This one from Week 2 Day 5, is just amazing! Knowing that there is NOTHING that can separate us from the love of God is so AWESOME! No matter what we do......God is ALWAYS faithful and will NEVER STOP LOVING US!!! Oh, how that just melts my heart!
"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, ,nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!" Romans 8:38-39
Your anger can't separate you from the love of God. Your sin, hatred, your self-righteousness,, your stronghold, your addiction, the Devil himself cannot separate you from the love of God. His love to us is unlike anybody else's love will ever be to us!
Beth asked the we read the following questions and statements that she believes God wants to ask or say to you. Just revel in His love for you. I know I am! :> )
1. Do you realize that I came to meet with you?
2. Do you have any idea how much I love you? How taken I am with you?
3. Do you know that I have never forsaken you nor will I ever reject you? I was there all along. I always will be.
4. Do you realize I knew everything about you the day you were conceived? I anticipated your life and planned for it.
5. You do have an enemy, My Child. But it is not Me. He wants you to think it is.
6. I am for YOU!
7. Do you think you need to prove yourself lovable to Me? Deep down inside, are you trying to earn My love and attention? (oh, don't we all feel like this sometimes?)
8. As you strive to love Me more, do you realize the key to loving Me more is to let Me love you more? (WOW!!!)
9. Why are you resisting Me? Why are you running from Me?
10. To whom have you compared Me, and with whom have you confused me?
11. I'm not like them.
12. I know what's happened, I know what's on your mind.
13. I alone know the plan for how this turns out well. I alone know how to prosper you through this.
14. My eyes and My affections are on you right now.
15. Quit trying to be so strong. Let Me be strong for you.
16. I love you unashamedly. Even now My banner flies over you. Everyone in the heavenlies knows how I feel about you. I'd leave you red-faced over My love for you....if you'd let Me!!
Thank You, Lord, that NOTHING can separate me from Your love. I rejoice today that Your love for me is perfect. There is no one like You.
I LOVE YOU!
