“What would you attempt if you knew you could never fail?” The words seemed to leap off the page of the Bible Study I’ve been working through on Romans 8.
My immediate answer was, “That’s easy! I would finish the book I’m working on and pitch it to agents and editors, of course.”
But then, I had to ask myself, “What holds me back from doing that now?”
The answer is simple. Fear. Fear of the hard work I know it will take. Fear of rejection. Fear of failure.
But Romans 8 says that nothing can separate me from God’s love through Christ Jesus. No power in heaven or hell, nothing present and nothing to come. No criticism, no rejection, no failure can ever separate me from God’s love.
No matter what I may face, I ought to move forward boldly in the courage and confident assurance that God will never abandon me, never forsake me, and never stop loving me. All my foolish fears evaporate when I make the choice to turn my face toward Him and bask in the warmth of His unfailing love.
