Faith In The Love Of God Wins The Battle (3)
“I will not leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrew 13: 5).
The love of Christ for us is stronger than all, creating such a strong bond between us and Him that cannot be broken. He is always with us! Knowing the strength of our enemy the devil, He had declared, “I will not leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrew 13: 5), under any circumstance. Oh, what an assurance born out of His love for us – not that we love Him but because He loves us beyond measure. So, Paul knowing these by experience, he declared that there is absolutely nothing, no satanic invention that can separate us from the love of Christ.
Now as a man who is experienced in spiritual battles, he knew the weapons that the enemy uses to try to shake Christian believers, lying to them that God does not love them. Now watch this! Paul had to name the instrumentalities that the devil uses one by one – which one of these is he using against you?
“Is it tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword or death or life, or angels or principalities or powers, or things present, or things to come, or height or depth, or any other created thing or even invention by the devil? For I am persuaded that none of these things shall be able to separate us from the strong bond of the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8: 35 – 39). Glory to God in the highest!
When you are fully imparted by the extent of knowledge of the love of God, then you are growing into His fullness and becoming more like Him, for as He is, so are we in this present world (1 John 4: 17). Therefore, precious saint of God, cheer up and receive more love of God into your spirit. Open up your heart and let more of His love flow into you. It is not based on your merit but is totally based on what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us all. Receive this with thanks and praise to Him alone who is worthy – King Jesus, the Lord!
