St. Paul’s words are bold.
He dares to hope in God’s abundance. Such confidence must have come from experiencing Christ’s passionate and personal love in an intense way.
Re-reading his quote reminds us that God promises us his fidelity. He promises his presence and his goodness, whether leading us “through verdant pastures” or through “the valley of death” (Psalm 23).
If Christ is my King, what can stand against me?
