God's Character, Proverbs

God’s Love Never Runs Out

When I live my life trusting in Jesus, everything is different. I remember when I applied for a new job 15 years ago. I was so upset that I didn’t get it. Now, my attitude has totally changed. When something does not go planned, I think ‘God what do you want me to do?’ I thank God for protecting me from making a mistake, and I look forward to what God has planned for my future. 

When Satan replays all my mistakes and sins in my mind like a movie reel, I start to feel bad and not worthy of God’s love. I am right. I am not worthy of God’s love, yet he loves me anyway. God loves you too. God loves all his children, even if they don’t know him yet. God let his son, Jesus, die to forgive our sins. God forgave me a long time ago and blotted out my sins. So, I have to focus on the place that God has me in right now. God can use our mistakes to refine us. God can take all those things, that we thought we totally messed up, and use them for his good work. Difficult times can help us clearly see the goodness of God. I am thankful for my difficult times, because God changed my heart. Although difficult at the time, I released control and put my trust in God. It was a gradual process, that becomes easier with practice. Now, I remember all the situations that God carried me through, and know that he will work out everything for my good.

Blows that hurt cleanse away evil,
As do stripes the inner depths of the heart.

—Proverbs 20:30 NKJV

When we try to do God’s will and praise God for his mercy on us, we find the beauty of this life. We find life. We find out why this life is so beautiful and needs to cherished. We find that God can stretch us and extend us, beyond what we thought was possible. God can bless us. When God is on our side, we don’t need anything else. Yet when God sends us friends and people to encourage and support us, it is such a refreshing blessing!

He who follows righteousness and mercy
Finds life, righteousness, and honor.

—Proverbs 21:21 NKJV

When we are faced with unexpected scorn, unfairness or evil, we can guard our mouths from speaking words that cannot be taken back. I used to get upset and cry and let the unfairness fester in my mind and torment me. Now, when I find myself doing this, I pray. God can take away all these feelings. God can give our hearts grace, so we don’t respond. Instead, we give it to God to deal with in the heavenly realms. Keep your soul at peace, walk away and give it to God to handle.

Whoever guards his mouth and tongue
Keeps his soul from troubles.

—Proverbs 21:23 NKJV

God has a plan for our lives. God can take any situation and turn it into a good work. God always loves us in a perfect way. God’s love for us never runs out, no matter what we do.

Sing Your Praises

I love this beautiful song, Promises, sung by Joel Barnes and Naomi Raine.
