Day 5 – Overwhelming Victory

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Romans 8:37-39 (NLT)

“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow-not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below-indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Reflection

Here are the implications of the realized presence of the Lord through the Holy Spirit.  We have overwhelming victory in Christ and have full assurance of God’s unfailing and inseparable love in our lives. This is the same implication available for those who are on our hearts, that they will have the overwhelming victory in Christ. As we continue to love them, let’s be reminded of God’s unfailing and inseparable love for their lives.

Responding to the Word

Let’s respond in worship to the song “Your Love never fails.” Reflecting on the words of this song, let’s praise God for this assurance we have of his love in our lives. Let’s also pray for those on our hearts that even in difficult circumstances God’s love will break through in their lives.

Nothing can separate

Even if I ran away

Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes

But You have new mercies for me everyday

Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages

Your love never changes

There may be pain in the night

But joy comes with the morning

And when the oceans rage

I don’t have to be afraid

Because I know that You love me

Your love never fails

The wind is strong and the water’s deep

But I’m not alone here in these open seas

Cause Your love never fails

The chasm was far too wide

I never thought I’d reach the other side

But Your love never fails

You make, all things, work together for my good.
