I am sure.

31What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

33Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

38For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Read it again.

Slowly.

Savour it.

For I am sure… nothing.. will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

There is much in this world conspiring against our union with God through Jesus Christ. But this is the grace we have received: He will prevail. Against death, powers, present or things to come, He will prevail. Our doubts, struggles in faith, weakness and failings, have nothing on the sufficiency of HIs grace towards us.

He is for us. Praying for us. Having given Himself for us, Jesus has positioned those who receive His grace to be eternally with Him.
