‘Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations…’ – Deuteronomy 7:9
There are times when nothing makes sense to us. There are so many what if’s and why me. In such moments we forget that the LORD is our God. He is the ‘I am’. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
In the above verses, it is profound how God is reminding us of the truth that he is the One who fulfils his word. When we say that he has redeemed us, he has actually paid the price and gained possession of us in exchange for a payment.
This payment is the blood of Christ Jesus, his Son. Hence, we are called ‘Saved’.
It is the word that He gave to our forefather Abraham which holds true even now. And Abraham is our forefather not by genetic lineage but by faith. It is so deep to ponder over the importance of faith in the Christian life. We are believers, His sons and daughters, His redeemed people by his grace, through faith in Him. He has kept and will continue to keep his covenant for generations to come.
God’s love does not wither like the flower but it is the fragrance of love which remains even after the flower has withered. Jesus loves us even when we don’t, his love is not dependent on our actions and it is unwavering.
Let this sweet promise and the infinite love of Christ draw us to him and cause us to rejoice. Jesus doesn’t keep a record of our wrongs but is quick to forgive when we confess, repent of our sins, cast our burdens on him, and trust him with his plan.
Prayer ~ Jesus, we are not worthy of this love which you shower on us. But still, you remind us how precious we are to you. Let us be soaked in your Word and live the purpose for which you have called us. Help us to look beyond our earthly life and set our eyes on giving glory to you and your kingdom.
