" So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God's love. I'm convinced that his love will triumph over death, life's troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken His love. There is no power above us or beneath us - no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God's passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!" Roms :38-39
This scripture is so powerful. It speaks to me about Our Father's wonderful love for us. It gives me so much confidence that there is nothing that will keep me from His love.
I was also reading from Isaiah 43:19 in the Amplified version "Behold I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
I know that my God is doing a NEW thing in my life and it fills me with such JOY.
My father passed away last year and I believe that he is now in heaven. After his death I was very sad and missed him so much. I had to really press in and pray fervently for the grief to pass as I wanted to experience joy again. Also a dear friend prayed for me. I believed that the prayers were answered the moment we asked God and after a few months the sadness was gone. I found that JOY was bubbling up from within my spirit and I was laughing again.
I want to walk in the fullness of what Jesus has done for me . But I have also heard it said that sometimes we have to storm the gates of heaven to partake and enter into that fullness.
But Oh what JOY that abundant Life brings when we take it.
