Today’s truth is another that is precious to me. It goes along well with what I shared yesterday.
God likes us. He delights in us. We are precious to Him.
So He doesn’t just tolerate us and roll His eyes at the mention of our names. He doesn’t get annoyed by our prayers and requests. He gives us so much more than our salvation and he doesn’t do it begrudgingly.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.”
Our God is a God of restoration. He brings wholeness to every area of our lives. He doesn’t leave us in the rubble in which He finds us. He returns what’s been taken and lost. Wrong is made right. Things are brought back to the state He intended.
His promise is this: “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten….never again will my people be shamed.”
And this, one of my favorite verses since the summer of 2005.
