Kathie’s Roman Digs (Week 18-Romans 8)

God did what we couldn’t because HE LOVES US!
God achieved what the law was unable to accomplish, because the law was limited by the weakness of human nature. Romans 8:3 (TPT)

Verses 1-8Verses 9-17Verses 18-30Verses 31-39
The Father sent His Son in human body, who fulfilled the requirement of the law for usSin has no more claim on us (9-12)All creation endures sin’s consequences & longs for freedom. (9-12)If God is for us, who would dare to tangle with God? (31-34)
The Spirit empowers us to live a life of peace. (5-6)The Holy Spirit beckons, and our Christ-likeness grows. (12-14)We wait eagerly for transformation as God promised & grow in Spirit as we wait. (22-25)Nothing can drive a wedge between us and God’s love. (35-39)
If we focus on ourselves, we can never please God. (7-8)As heirs of God himself, we will experience both good & bad times. (15-17)The Holy Spirit intercedes on our behalf. Everything in our lives of love in God is worked into something good. (26-28)
God designed each of us to share the likeness of His Son & called us to Him (29-30)
Romans 8, ReGen Harmony

Depression has always lingered in my vicinity, since I was a young, and I learned to treasure and repeat outloud this truth: 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.

Even when I struggled with my emotions, I knew and clung to this truth. God planned and formed me in this unique pattern, and He said, “It is good.” I will believe in His love and that He has a purpose for me. And there I find peace.

Every day as I look around me, I see messages that God loves me, just like this one written in the sand. The beauty is that waves can never wash away this truth.
