Going Through Some Tough Times?

Then consider Romans 8:28-39:

 

Whatever happens, I can trust God, realizing He is using life’s circumstances to conform me into Christlikeness:

 

We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” (Vs. 28-30)

 

The fact that people are against me pales in light of the fact that He will furnish all that I need in life, including Christ Himself:

 

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Vs. 31, 32)

 

Accusations against me are meaningless in view of the fact that Christ is in constant communication with the Father on my behalf:

 

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” (Vs. 33, 34)

 

I can rest in the assurance of Christ’s love as He promises me complete victory in every situation:

 

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” (Vs. 35-37)

 

No controlling factors in life can separate me from the love of God that is found in Christ Jesus:

 

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.” (Vs. 38, 39)
