In panic I cried out, “I am cut off from the Lord!” But you heard my cry for mercy and answered my call for help. Psalms 31:22 NLT
David had a moment of panic when he thought he might have been cut off from God.
Close your eyes and think for a moment how he must have felt. What popped into your mind?
When I imagined how David must have felt, my foundation dropped out from underneath me. My heart sank. Emptiness, lostness, darkness, and fear overwhelmed me. I couldn’t move. I had to find God!
There have been times in my life when I have NEEDED to feel His presence, and just like David I cried out and just like God, He answered!
God answered me through His Word. He said, “Nothing can separate you from my love.”
If you’re a child of God, you may feel as though you’ve have been cut off from God, but that’s never going to happen. God has sealed you with His Holy Spirit! God says, “You’re mine!” He hears your cry for mercy and will answer your call for help.
Great is God’s Faithfulness! Deb
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39 NLT
“In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise,”
Ephesians 1:13 NASB1995
