Great is HIS faithfulness! Strength, hope and happiness are all from His loving hands. Best of all… He gave us pardon from all sin!
Most parents want the very best for their children. As much as they want to do for them – and be for them, you can imagine how much more our Heavenly Father wants for His children! If we understand God as a loving, kind, and protective Father, then we understand that He always has our best interest in mind. That’s why sometimes we are forged in fire – it’s also why sometimes we feel a warm Heavenly embrace. He knows whether we need to be kicked – or kissed. Tribulation works patience, and patience will work experience, and experience a hope that leaves me unashamed.
God is merciful to us. He’s patient when others would give up. His mercies are new every single morning. Each day begins a clean slate – and aren’t we thankful? I can think of a lot of days I’d like to forget forever – days when I was less than stellar and more dense than I imagined I ever could be. I’m just so human sometimes. But God loves me and He helps me regain the courage I lose. My best is what He requires – His best is what I’m so thankful for.
We can rest in God’s faithfulness. We can rely on God’s guidance. We can always know that tomorrow is a new day… filled with brand new mercies from our Heavenly Father.
It occurred to me that this passage says that God’s love is STEADFAST – it could have just said that God loves us – but it didn’t. God’s love is described as steadfast. Would you describe human love that way? No, me neither. God’s not going anywhere – His love is with you to stay – you can bet on it.
Tomorrow will be filled with brand new possibilities, new goals to meet and God’s blessings to boot! Wake up, get up, make up and share God’s best with everyone you meet! I know you can do it! God’s got this! 🙂
