Today Reminder - 23 December 2011

My prayer for you for today is that you will know God loves you and nothing can separate you from His love - ever. In Jesus Name.

It is two days before Christmas and today I want to share one of the most important things you must always know, remember and maybe say to yourself every day. It is: “Nothing can separate us from God’s love.” Christmas just confirms that to us. Romans 9:34 “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.” We struggle through our daily lives and we tend to feel that we lose the battle as we slip on our way. But God love you so much that He send Jesus to die, so that we cannot be condemned. Romans 9:32-33 “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.” God gave you right standing with Him and through Jesus your sins is forgiven, you are free and no one can condemn you. You are a child of God perfectly created by a master designer. Oh what wonderful God we have, who loves us so much. I can’t help but shout out Paul’s words in Romans 9:31 “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

You are not facing this day and each day after this one on your own, no, you have a loving God, a pleading Son and a powerful counsellor travelling with you. God is in you as Jesus is in you and as the Holy Spirit is in you, above you, below you and around you.  Romans 9:35-39 “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? 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.”

God loves you and will never stop loving you. Have a blessed Christmas friend of Jesus, you remain in my prayers.

We were blessed with rain in South Africa, what an awesome God we worship.

Have a great day.
