“I’m absolutely convinced that nothing-nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable-absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” Romans 8:38-39 (MSG)
Sometimes in our lives, even when we have declared Jesus as Lord, it can feel as if we’re a thousand miles from Him. It’s hard to describe, but you can feel it in your heart that something just isn’t right. You feel distant from Him.
The truth about it is, that we are the problem. God doesn’t move. He is always constant, never changing, and more stable than we could ever be. So if he stays the same, who has distanced themselves in this relationship? Us.
Thank Jesus He is the great “Bridge Builder” as C.S. Lewis describes Him. He bridges the gap that brings us closer to the love of God. We don’t have to stay in this feeling of distance. Let us embrace Jesus the way He has embraced us and spend time with Him. He desires to be with you.
Thank You Jesus for embracing us, for embracing me. Thank you for bridging the eternal gap we would never be able to cross without You. Thank you for loving me so well. Mold my heart to be like Yours. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
