You Are Not Alone

We are more than conquerors
through him who loved us.
          —Romans 8:37

It took me less than five minutes to write down the names of ten acquaintances who have faced difficult issues in the past year. You could jot down a similar list.

In a paragraph that will freeze your blood, the apostle Paul cataloged more than two dozen abuses that befell him (2 Cor 11:23–27).

And in his letter to the Romans, he cited seven things that were common to first-century Christians: trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, danger, and sword—then added, “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” In all these things!

Are you going through a rough patch? Hang on, for there is nothing that “will be able to separate [you] from the love of God” (Rom 8:39).

You are not alone.
Don’t ever forget that.
