S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Prior to this statement, St. Paul asks us if anything can separate us from the love of God. Then he gives a litany of possible “SEPARATORS.” But after the question he then says, with emphasis, “No! In everything we are victorious through Jesus”(paraphrase).
Every “Follower of Jesus” knows that somehow, through all of the challenges we face, things work out for our good every time (v. 28). The worst situations turn around to the point that the term “No Worries” was probably coined by a “Jesus Person” living in Australia. “No Worries” is the theme of every “Follower of Jesus.” In fact, in his letter to the church at Philippi St. Paul said, “Do not be anxious about anything (Philippians 4:6a). In other words “No Worries!” Now, am I suggesting that there are no challenges or concerns for the “Jesus Follower?” Absolutely not! However, in the middle of our darkest hour we are told in this same chapter to call out to our loving Heavenly Father and address him as “DADDY!” (v.15). You don’t call anyone Daddy who is an idiot. Daddies are “DELIVERERS!” So, whatever you’re facing today in the way of potential stress … “No Worries, Daddy’s On It!”
I’m thankful today that nothing is too difficult for You! You see my challenges and I’m glad You’re on it! Amen
