38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of Christ Jesus our Lord.
– Romans 8:38-39
Nothing, can separate us from the eminence, unending, unconditional love of Christ Jesus, our Lord and saviour. Just take a moment this morning to read that sentence over a couple of times and try to comprehend what it means. You might be on away on holiday at the moment, or you might still be working hard at home. But where ever you are, whatever you are doing, this verse is for you.
After the internal struggle that Paul expressed at the end of Chapter 7, it is good to see him speak openly about his relationship with God in Romans 8. There are many other verses in Romans 8 that also inspire millions of Christians around the world every day, you can find some of them here. Paul was a man who wrote lots of the 66 Books in the Bible. He started off being a wicked man who persecuted anyone who followed God and after an encounter with the Lord himself, became a follower and preacher of the Good News.
Paul states in this verse that after all he has been through, he is very certain, nothing in creation, will be able to separate you from God. Christ Jesus’ love is so epic that not even death can can separate you from it. So, I leave you with this today, remember this week that whatever you or anyone else does, will not separate you from the almighty Lord God.
This is a relatively well-known Psalm, however if you look deeper, at the specific wording of the Psalm, you can find out a lot about the time in which this was written. I first found out the background behind this Psalm at Spring Harvest at a sermon on “Sinking in the psalms” by Dave Steel.
The first two stanzas says “I lift up my eyes to the mountains where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” What do you think David is says in this lines at Psalms 121?

After the death of Moses, Joshua was chosen by God to cross the river Jordan with the Israelites and to capture the promised land. Very early in the book of Joshua in the Bible, there is a verse that inspires me every day of my life and reminds me that God is with me during the hard, bad times and the good.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
You might also like to do this, but I like to memorize amazing verses from God’s word like this, so that if I ever have a day when I feel like God has left me, it puts me back on the path of truth and faith.
