Read Romans 8:34-39

34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:

   “For your sake we face death all day long;
   we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j]

 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Content
In this passage, the spirit of condemnation is addressed and the love of God is describe. Paul, the writer of Romans, also describes how nothing can separate us from God’s love. Take a moment to read this passage and internalize what is being said. Before you do that, stop and ask God to speak to you through His word.

Application
Have you ever been ridden with guilt, or felt condemned by the world, people, or even the devil? God wants to make one thing clear, is that His Son came to die for us and give us freedom. That spirit of condemnation is not from the Father, but from the devil. Now go back and read Romans 8:26-39.

Jesus is sitting at God’s right hand, praying for us. That is so cool – Jesus is praying for you and is your intercessor with the Father. We also see in verse 26, that the Holy Spirit also intercedes for us. This is just another awesome passage of how Jehovah Nissi is fighting for you; but it does not end there. The passage goes on to describe the depth of His love and how we have victory of such trials.

Prayer
Jesus, thank you for loving me, and praying for me. Help me to know that You love me, and that with You all things are possible.
