Are you freaked out today?
Pastor Lonnie Moline
Let us consider what the Apostle Paul writes in Romans 8:38-39 (NIV) which says, "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.”
Paul covers the bases here. What are you facing today that has you running scared, anxious, nervous, etc? Are you faced with death as you’ve gotten that terminal medical diagnosis? Or maybe you’re expecting the birth of children in your home and you’re not sure how to handle it.
Ever experienced one of those times when you feel as if nothing is going right? Your mind is running full with thoughts and you just know that you’re in the middle of a spiritual challenge.
Present day politics and the future of our local, state, and national leadership and their far-reaching decisions is enough to freak people out.
Maybe you’re future is up in the air and unclear to you today. You thought hard, planned well, made backup plans and now its not as easy sailing as you first thought.
No matter what situation you find yourself in today find some time alone this week for simple prayer. Even better- find out when your church (you know where I mean, that place where you only visit on Christmas and Easter!) is gathering for worship and join in with them.
Allow yourself to be convinced as Paul was- that nothing will be able to separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
