God still loves me as I stand with the scoffers.
God IS love, it is who he is and what he does but we still reject him even though he loves us like we yearn to be loved. Our soul longs for such love and complete acceptance but we still rebell and walk away and even fight against him.
|Isaiah 53:5-6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.|
But he was still willing to be pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.
|2 Chronicles 16:9 The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.|
Lord help me to grow in faith and love and to trust you completely everyday.
