According to Your Faithful Love
Be gracious to me, God, according to Your faithful love; according to Your compassion, blot out my rebellion.
I’m very thankful that God deals with us according to His character and not ours. He is love, and He will be gracious to us according to His faithful love toward us. Because of His great compassion toward us, He will gladly blot out our rebellion. He does this for those who repent and turn to Him. Everything He allows in our lives is for the purpose of drawing us to Him in relationship.
We must also remember, however, that God is just. For those who do not repent and turn to Him, He will judge. Turning your back on God is never a good idea because, frankly, you really can’t handle it on your own. Sooner or later, you will need a Savior, and calling to Him while He may be found is wisdom and humility packed together.
If you’ve come to the end of yourself and have realized your need for God, turn to Him today. He is not waiting to punish you; He is waiting with open arms to wrap you in His loving embrace. He will deal with you according to His faithful love toward you and not according to your sin. He dealt with your sin on the cross, and He is more than willing to blot out your rebellion and never remember it again. You can have a brand new start with Him and enjoy the richness of His grace and freedom from guilt and condemnation. That is a life worth living.
Have a blessed day!
