    Nothing Can Separate You

    Monday, September 25, 2017

    This year is quickly passing by and I wonder how many days we have spent being concerned or worried about something that is out of our control? You may have gone through a family crisis this year, or a health crisis, or maybe a personal crisis. How many days did you spend wringing your hands wondering what you were going to do or what the outcome was going to be? I pray instead of worrying, you claimed God’s promises that He is with you every step of the way. I want to share one of Sarah Young’s devotions that speaks to the heart of this subject.

    Nothing can separate you from My Love. Let this divine assurance trickle through your mind and into your heart and soul. Whenever you start to feel fearful or anxious, repeat this unconditional promise: “Nothing can separate me from Your Love, Jesus.”

    Most of mankind’s misery stems from feeling unloved. In the midst of adverse circumstances, people tend to feel that love has been withdrawn and they have been forsaken. This feeling of abandonment is often worse than the adversity itself. BE assured that I never abandon any of My children, not even temporarily. I will never leave you or forsake you! My Presence watches over you continually. I have engraved you on the palms of my Hands.

    I know I am guilty at times of not connecting the mind with the heart on what I know to be true. I know what I tell others to do in times of crisis, but sometimes I don’t do a good job of doing that myself. So I want to encourage you whatever you may have gone through this year or whatever you may have to go through the remaining of the year, remember to connect what you know in your mind with your heart and allow God’s perfect peace and promises to walk with you through the situation. Because NOTHING CAN SEPARATE YOU!

    Remember, we are here to come alongside you in any way we can on your journey.

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
