Day #5 – God’s Power to Turn It For Good

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Romans 8:28-39

There are no past or present things that we’ve done that cannot be weaved by God for His purposes and for our good. Nothing falls outside of God’s sovereignty. Nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus - this is what makes us more than conquerors! Let’s us not give in to unbelief, rather let’s believe in the sovereign power of God and His love.

Reflection

What is your greatest fear in this life?  Is it rejection from your friends and family?  Is it failing your final exam of this semester?  Is it being laid off from your job?  Is it getting terminal illness?  Is it death?  The list can go on and on.  These are the real things we see and experience in our lives.  These experiences can sometimes cripple us from living out God’s purposes to the fullest. The truth is that God is sovereign.  He has formed us and called us to be part of His wonderful plan.  But why do we doubt and why do we hesitate to dive in?

In this passage, Paul is absolutely convinced that nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.  Paul was imprisoned frequently and flogged severely. Five times he received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one and three times he was beaten with rods. He was exposed to death again and again.  However, these things did not keep Paul from proclaiming “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” May this truth set us free from the life of fear and unbelief to the life of faith and victory.

Response

Let’s surrender our fears and doubts that keep us from living out God’s purposes.  God is sovereign and His purposes for our lives are good.  Let’s proclaim that nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.  This is our overwhelming victory!
