Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/15/14

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

Jesus Christ 4“If God be for us, who can be against us?”     (Romans 8:31b)

We go through seasons of change and stagnation, times of trouble and turmoil, days of distress and duress. We feel the oppression, and the weight of it presses us down. At different times it comes at us in different ways. Work can become overwhelming and deadlines unrelenting; we seek relief, but help is not found. Health can take a sudden turn; illness and injury can take a toll. The outlook may seem dark.

Yet there is no darkness in the Lord. No tribulation or power can stop His love for us. If He is for us, then what can be against us that His love for us cannot conquer, for God’s love is great, and God’s love is powerful.  He gave His one and only son that we might never be separated from Him or the love of Jesus Christ.

May the love of the Lord be your strengthen this day and every day.
