See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God
It’s indeed a great privilege we have received from God to be called his children, in other words, it’s not something that should be taken likely as we must reciprocate the love back to Him.
However, sometimes in our walk with God, you could feel that that God is ready to give up on you because, instead of walking confidently in faith, you sometimes stumble and fall.
Do you ever fear that there is a limit to God’s tolerance of your failure and that you are walking dangerously near that outer barrier or have already crossed it? It’s true that the walk of faith can sometimes be interrupted by moments of personal unbelief or rebellion, or even satanic deception. It’s during those moments when we think that God has surely lost His patience with us and is ready to give up on us. The temptation is to give up, stop walking by faith altogether, slump dejectedly by the side of the road and Satan is elated.
Such feelings just come to be because we are humans just as the Scriptures says in Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; but thank God for His grace through which we find justification as also seen in Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Here we have our anchorage knowing the efficiency of His uncommon grace in our lives revives our inner man and we are quickened and once again stirred up for by His Love.
The primary truth you need to know about God in order for your faith to remain strong is that His love and acceptance is unconditional. When your walk of faith is strong, God loves you. When your walk of faith is weak, God loves you. When you’re strong one moment and weak the next, strong one day and weak the next, God loves you. God’s love for you is the great eternal constant in the midst of all the inconsistencies of your daily walk.
God does not want us to sin as Apostle John wrote: “I write this to you so that you will not sin” 1 John 2:1, John continued by reminding us of that “But if anybody does sin, we have One who speaks to the Father in our defense Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world” 1 John 2:2
Prayer: Lord, give me grace to correct my character defects and to help meet the needs of others and to always remember that your constant love never fails in Jesus Christ Holy name Amen.
