Not Separate From His Love

Not Separate From His Love by Kirk Hunt

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Romans 8:35 NKJV

Paul survived savage beatings, death warrants, and unjust imprisonments. He knew he would face similar difficulties until his last moments on Nero’s chopping block. Yet he boldly speaks his absolute confidence in God. No one can come between God’s people and the love of Jesus Christ. No matter what injustice you face, no one can separate you from our Savior who loves and cares for you.

I will confess, that in the middle of the trials and difficulties, I wonder. Like Job, I must have confidence in my life before God, and complete faith in His grace and mercy. I may be the least of His children, but He loves me most of all.

Today, millions of men and women, boys and girls, suffer in difficulties beyond their control and power. They are still God’s children, no matter what you do or say. You can whip and abuse those who God loves, but that does not change God’s heart about them.

They may not look like you. They may not sound like you. They may not confess Christ. God loves them just the same.

Whatever is happening in your life today, God loves you. Remember that in the middle of your trials and difficulties. Let that knowledge color how you respond to others.

Think: “God’s love for me and His children is unstoppable.

Pray: “Lord, help me to remember Your love for me, and others, at all times.”

Peace On Earth


Peace On Earth By Kirk Hunt


“Glory to God in the highest,

And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Luke 2:14 NKJV


An angelic host filled the skies with their presence, then filled the silence with praise for God. The shepherds could only respond with reverence and adoration for the new-born King. The angels left the shepherds with a deep, abiding peace. A peace that comes from knowing God Himself orchestrates goodwill for all of humanity.


It is harder to know God’s peace in the middle of today’s turmoil and chaos. God’s peace does not mean the absence of conflict or difficulties. The shepherds who witnessed the angelic choir lived under heavy-handed Roman occupation. All of them already had, or would, experience wars, uprisings and conflicts.


Still, the angels were correct then and now. God intends peace and goodwill for all mankind. That includes every man, woman or child, regardless of their background, race or beliefs. “They are precious in His sight.


During this Christmas season, stop and rest for a while. Seek out the peaceful silence that only God’s presence can bring. Let His goodwill flow in your heart and soul, despite the noise and chaos of this present world.


Consider how you can bring His peace and goodwill to a man or woman nearby. Or far away. Someone, needs to know that God still loves and cares for them. Be His hands and feet in bringing peace and goodwill to all men. They are all still precious in His sight.


Think:                God’s still offers His peace and goodwill to all men and women.


Pray:                   “Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace and goodwill to all men.”
