Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? (Romans 8:35)
Feeling overwhelmed? Even though it’s only Monday, do you already have the sensation that this week is going to bring more than you can bear? Every one of us knows what it is like to be overwhelmed. The stack of bills is too high. The pain is too great. Waves of loneliness never seem to stop. While we slept, our “to do” list seemingly doubled in length. It never seems to end.
Being overwhelmed is almost always a bad thing. But not always. For Christ himself loves to overwhelm you with his love. He thinks about you constantly. He knows every detail of your life. Everything. And he still is passionately in love with you. He tells us that no tribulation, distress, or persecution can ever separate us from his overwhelming love. Can you imagine? A Niagra Falls like outpouring of perfect love… falling on your head. His love never fails. He never gives up on you. Nothing can stop his love.
Personal Application: Knowing that Jesus loves you is one thing; living as one overwhelmed by him is another. Which will you choose today?
What was it like the first time you were overwhelmed by the goodness of God?
