Are things coming between us and the Lord? No! He is always with us, but the cares of this world and the fiery darts of our adversary may hinder our feelings of closeness with the Lord.

We know this is happening when our walking in love, joy and peace is altered. When we receive bad news from a doctor, are unable to pay a bill, or have a difficult conflicting situation with someone, we may feel as though the Lord is far away. What happened can appear to come between us and the Lord; we may not hear His voice clearly, receive His love or trust His care.

What we learn to do in these cases is see the Lord handling the situation, and know the Lord is placing a hedge of protection around us. He stands between us and the difficulty. We do so by faith, quickly remembering He is with us and not far away. We are able, by His grace, to allow nothing to come between us and know that all that comes through His love is upon us. Our Lord Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant and we are reconciled to God. We can hold tight because He has brought us to a place of surety, comfort and safety. This persuasion handles any division, from glory to glory!

Romans 8:38-39  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 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.
