2020 Day 53 – Romans 7-9 and Psalms 53

In chapter 8 of Paul’s words to the Romans, we can find great encouragement.  The blessings described there are not for everyone, but come to “them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Rom 8:1)  By living this way we are not promised a perfect life or a life without some struggles, but we are promised that all things will work together for good. (8:28)  When things are not going our way and we start to doubt, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”  (Rom 8:31)  It is up to us to study His word, to believe it, and to follow it.  If we do our part, Paul explains how nothing can keep us from His blessings.  “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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom 8:38-39)
