Godís Love Is Greater
For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. óRomans 8:38-39
Abuse means ďto misuse, to use improperly, to use up or to injure by maltreatment.Ē The effects of abuse can be devastating and long-lasting. Many people never recover from it.
There are different kinds of abuse: sexual, emotional, verbal, physical. No matter the form, the results are always terrible. It will keep you from functioning properly and prevent you from receiving Godís love and experiencing the righteousness, peace, and joy of His kingdom.
I understand this firsthand because I was abused throughout my childhood. Thankfully, I donít just know the power of abuse, but I know the greater power of Godís love. Because of Godís love, my past doesnít have to affect my future anymore.
If youíve been abused, understand today that God loves you. Nothing can separate you from His love. He has made a way for you to be free from your past so you can live in Godís good plans for you.
With Jesus, there is hope for newness of life. Will you receive His love today?
Prayer Starter: God, I donít want to let anything in my past to keep me from Your plans and purpose for my life. Overwhelm me with Your love today so I can experience Your healing and freedom from abuse.
