Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Romans 8:35
Understanding and knowing God is a necessity. We believe we know Him, but that is not true. The fact of knowing his Word is no guarantee for us. Many talk, say and state that they know Him. But the real knowledge that supports our words is the attitude with which we take on ordeals; that is to say, how we face trouble, hardship, disease and disaster.
He who knows Him remains faithful; at no moment does he doubt what He may do, and never renounces his faith. During difficult times, that is when we know what is true. Stating that we belong to Christ must be such a conviction born in our heart, so deep that it is not moved by circumstances.
God is expecting faith and loyalty from us. No matter what happens, nothing will make us change because we have known and understood that in Him there is no change like shifting shadows.
