Beloved of God, do you know that nothing can ever separate you from the love of God? NOTHING! Let that sink in. So you did something nasty, wrong and sinful, don’t stay there, come over to Him and repent. He’s so loving. All He wants is you!
One of my closest friends sent me this saying by AW Tozer during the week;
The Person of God
My faith does not rest on God’s promises. My faith rests upon God’s character. Faith must rest in confidence upon the One who made the promises….
When I think of the angels who veil their faces before the God who cannot lie, I wonder why every preacher in North America does not begin preaching about God—and nothing else. What would happen if every preacher just preached about the person and character of God for an entire year—who He is, His attributes, His perfection, His being, the kind of a God He is and why we love Him and why we should trust Him? I tell you, God would soon fill the whole horizon, the entire world. Faith would spring up like grass by the water courses. Then let a man get up and preach the promises of God and the whole congregation would join in chorus: “We can claim the promises; look who made them!” This is the confidence; this is the boldness. Faith Beyond Reason, 45.
This has resonated so deeply especially in a week that the globe is shaken by riots, protests, murders and countless violent incidences (domestic abuse, rape, police brutality, kidnappings etc). Where is faith in all this? What are our thoughts of God in these times? Do we know His mind concerning these matters? What are we expected to do in these times? Do we blame Him? What are our words of comfort to each other?
