“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love?
Does it mean he no longer loves us
if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted,
or hungry, or destitute,
or in danger, or threatened with death? . . .
No, despite all these things,
overwhelming victory is ours
through Christ, who loved us."
Romans 8:35,37 NLT

Our President Elect will face difficult challenges when he takes office in January! Financial trouble is effecting families, communities, states, and nations around the world. Alan Greenspan is calling our present financial problem a 100 year “Credit Tsunami.” Other economists are predicting a “Great depression” like that of the 1930’s when some people ended up hungry and destitute. As a young boy I remember my father going to the county court house to pick up boxes of food - “Government Relief.” It is possible that some of us, or people we know, could end up looking for help at a “food pantry.” Financial uncertainties can threaten our peace of mind, but no amount of financial trouble can ever separate us from Christ’s love!

Natural Calamity can strike in all sorts of ways – hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc. Man-made calamities are becoming increasingly possible. Terrorists are committed to doing us harm. 9/11 may have been just a hint of what they have in mind. Dirty bombs, poisoning food and water supplies and spreading disease are possibilities. Even the most unimaginable calamity could never separate us from Christ’s love!

Christians around the world are being persecuted in greater numbers today than ever before. Even in the US conservative Christians are made fun of and are treated disrespectfully by the liberal media. Some politicians as well, are openly anti-Christian, like New York Senator Charles Schumer who stated "Candidates with deeply held Christian beliefs are unfit and disqualified from serving as a Federal Judge." That kind of prejudice and contempt is on the increase. If some day it would come to the point (God forbid) that we were in danger of imprisonment and torture and even threatened with death for our faith; would that mean God no longer loves us? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM CHRIST’S LOVE!! HALLELUJAH!!!

Let’s Pray-
Father, thank you for the security you provide for us in Christ’s love.
Today we choose not to give in to worry or fear, instead we choose to wholeheartedly place our trust in the promises of your Word.
