All of God’s people have to bear some amount of suffering and loss. In another post I quoted Psalm 34:19, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” You might these two questions about this. First, is this for women as well as men? Yes it is, God’s promise is for all His people. The second, while God will keep His word and do this (in His timing) does He still love me? Consider these verses from Paul’s letter to the Romans.
Romans 8:35-39 (NKJV)
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
These verses show that nothing or no one can separate us from God’s love. And being the all powerful God, there is nothing or no one who can stop Him from loving us. Pastor Sharon and I encourage you to pray about this. Ask God to make you more aware of His unending love for you.
