38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 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.

Romans 8:38-39

This is a nice scripture. Nothing in this world can keep us from the love of our Savior. He has overcome the world and told us to fear not (see John 16:33). The only thing that can actually keep us from our Savior is us. It is our goal in this life to turn our wills over to Him and trust Him with our lives. If we let Him into our lives, He will never leave us, and nothing in this world can tear Him from us or us from Him. He will always love us, and we just need to stay where His love can work in our lives.

So, let’s make it a goal to keep safely where the Savior’s love can act in our lives. If we do this, we will find the strength to stay there, despite anything and everything that the adversary can throw our way. We can do it, because He helps us do it. We are our own worst enemies at times, and we are honestly the only thing that stands in our way – the only roadblock on the path back to Him.
