The Heart of God Toward You, Never Forgotten, Always Loved
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
GOD wasn’t attracted to you and didn’t choose you because you were big and important—the fact is, there was almost nothing to you. He did it out of sheer love, keeping the promise he made to your ancestors. GOD stepped in and mightily bought you back out of that world of slavery, freed you from the iron grip of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know this: GOD, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations. But he also pays back those who hate him, pays them the wages of death; he isn’t slow to pay them off—those who hate him, he pays right on time (Deuteronomy 7:7-10 MSG).
When we look back and wonder how we ever made it this far, we realize it is not because we have been clever, but because God has been wise...not because we have been strong, but because God has been mighty...not because we have been consistent, but because God has been faithful.
