Silence, Stillness and Centering before God (2 Minutes)
Scripture Reading & Devotional:
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.
Romans 8:38 (NLT)
It seems we start out believing by nature, but soon become skeptical by practice. How many “guarantees” have you experienced as no guarantee at all? We have been lied to, taken advantage of, and let down so often we don’t know what to believe. But Paul knew one thing he was sure of. He was “convinced!” He was convinced that nothing could separate him from the love of God. How many things are you convinced of? And what a difference being that sure can make. If you were convinced that you could invest $10,000 in stock and get back $1,000,000, how long would it take you to get the $10,000? Paul had that same attitude toward the love of God. He was convinced that he could invest in God’s love that will never leave him and get back a peace that passes all understanding; God’s constant provision, the fruit of the Spirit, and eternal life. Today become convinced. God loves you, and nothing will ever separate you from Him.

Question to consider: Which word or phrase stands out to you. What might God be saying to you?)
Father, I believe, help my unbelief. I want to be convinced of Your love. Speak to my heart, move me, help me understand how trustworthy You are and how spectacular Your love is for me. AMEN
Prayer: Conclude with Silence (5 Minutes)
The Our Father (slowly pray this)
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
