Best reminder to begin your week ever!
Deuteronomy 7:9 "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." This is a huge promise that you can take to the bank. We never have to worry about whether or not God is going to live up to "His end of the covenant" do we? He is ALWAYS faithful and each one of us can pause what we are doing right now, look back upon our lives, and see that God is and has always been faithful. It's part of who He is and He can only be faithful. There is a caveat...we have to be faithful and we have to love Him.
As you begin this week, what is it that it keeping you from loving God with everything that you are and everything that you have? God isn't the one who needs to draw closer to us, we are the ones who need to draw closer to Him. Remember, when we surrender our lives to the Lord (Salvation), we become His adopted sons and daughters for all eternity. There is nothing that can ever "snatch" us out of God's hand. So, as Brennen Manning reminds us, He proximity to us never changes....He can feel distant but that is never on Him...that is always on us.
Live for the Lord today...we will address tomorrow when it gets here!
