Meaning Of Romans 8:35-39, Bible Scriptures & Why Nothing Can Separate You From God's Love

There are several verses in the Bible that say God is always with us. Romans 8:35-29 tells us that no matter what God is always there.

We all face times in our walk with faith that test our commitment to God when it feels like those promises are no longer true.

You could have done something that you're ashamed of or you've been living a good life, tithing, volunteering and spending time with God, then suddenly you are laid off from work or are going through a sudden, untimely death of someone close to you. 

During those moments, it appears that God has left you and that you are no longer precious to Him. If you were, why would bad things happen to you? What made you deserve to suffer? And where is God?

When tough times come you are at risk of stopping two things that keep us close to God and starting two things that make us feel even more distant.

1. Stop making God a priority.

One of the first things to go out of the window is our regimen with God.

2. Stop communicating with God.

The most important thing to remember when you find your faith slipping is that you have nothing but time to improve your relationship with God. He walks with us through the good times and the bad times. God doesn't define love in the same way we do, and sometimes he's working on a character of love vs just the romantic and sweet parts.

God can tell when you are struggling, and He will align your life to get you back on track. All He asks for is your faith in Him. You can also look to Romans for reassurance in God's faith in us. 

Romans 8:38 tells us, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

There is nothing that God will not forgive you for if you ask for His mercy. Reconnecting with your faith after a string of sins or unthinkable actions is always an option. 

Next time you feel like there is nothing left to keep you going, dive deeper into your faith and your commitments. Sacrificing any part of you to the unknown and the unseen can be one of the most fulfilling decisions you ever make. He will show you His love, just as He does in these bible scriptures.

Here are 11 Bible Quotes about God's love for you to journal or pray as you reconnect with Him.

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God. He who doesn't love doesn't know God, for God is love."1 John 4:7-8
