Scriptures: Isaiah 43:6-7 6I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring My sons from afar, And My daughters from the ends of the earth—7Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.” (NKJV)
Nugget: Sometimes, I am still amazed at just how much God loves me. There’s nothing that He wouldn’t do for any of us. I mean, He gave his own son for us. That in itself was more than enough, but on top of all of that God doesn’t give up on us & continues to love us in spite of ourselves & the things we do & don’t do.
These scriptures remind me that God continues to call for us & doesn’t give up on the love He has for us. God created us for His glory & knows what He put inside of each of us---so why would He give up on us? He created us for His goodness & glory & won’t let us go. It’s our free will if we decide to go in another direction, but why would we? As one Gospel song says, “Don’t give up on God because He won’t give up on you.”
He loves us just that much & more!!!
Quote: “If you took the love of all the best mothers and fathers who ever lived (think about that for a moment)--all the goodness, kindness, patience, fidelity, wisdom, tenderness, strength and love--and united all those virtues in one person, that person would only be a faint shadow of the love and mercy in the heart of God for you and me.” -Brennan Manning
