God is Never Far Away

BETTY ROBISON — God is Never Far Away.

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

It was years ago, but I will never forget the time that James told me he felt separated from God. I can still remember it like it was yesterday. I didn’t understand how someone who was always so close to the Lord now felt so distant and disconnected.

Have you ever felt that way?

The enemy wants us to believe that we are distant from God. Satan’s single greatest desire is to separate us from our source of abundant life.

But God’s Word says that there is nothing that can separate us from His love. God does not move, and He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Further Study: Hebrews 13:8; James 1:17; James 4:8

Take action: Declare today: Jesus, I receive Your freedom in my life. I receive Your grace and mercy. Fear has no place here. You are my security and my confidence. Your Word is life to my body, soul and spirit.
