Daily scripture and thoughts

“At that time, declares the Lord, I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they shall be my people.” Thus says the Lord : “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. (Jeremiah 31:1-3 ESV)

Through Isreals adulterous hearts The Lord was faithful and desired reconciliation with his people. He has always longed for faithfulness, dedication and love of His children, yet we all so easily wonder from Him. We seek to fulfill ourselves with empty things. Temporary fulfillment. He continues His faithfulness to us inspite of our doubts, and wavering hearts.

Think about how people love, one minute they are so in love, and the next second that love is gone- truth be told loving someone is a choice - not a feeling. Feelings are infatuation or lust not love. The Lord has chosen to love His people, his children inspite of how they love HIM. His love is not based on what we do or how we act.( unlike how we love others )

His love is an everlasting love, a love where He was willing to come to this earth as a baby and die on the Cross..that is true LOVE.

Dear ones  love is one we are to have for our Lord as well as our brothers and sisters. We can't love others based on their actions. We can't love based on circumstances or based on whether they called or act like they care. If that is the conditions to love then we will fail as well. We will not be worthy of love because we do not love others in that way. 

Love as Christ loved that is the command. He loved unto the Cross knowing we would not love him, He loved  us knowing we doubt, and not believe and even justify why we shouldn't love- He loved us in our sin.

Solo para la Gloria de Dios
