“This hope does not disappoint us, because God’s LOVE has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
God’s HOPE does not disappoint us
He is perfect in all of His ways and though we may resist Him, He continues to pursue us with His Great LOVE, which does not disappoint.
Though we push Him away, He pulls close still.
We live prideful lives believing that we can live with out God, and do this life thing on our own. We walk away from His word, we ignore Him when He knocks on the door of our heart, and yet He keeps pursuing us trying to show us His goodness and grace.
Ignoring the good He has done we say, “I don’t need you God!” We push Him away and turn our backs upon Him doing just as we please. Then, He says, “Come back to Me My child, I am the Lover of your soul and will restore you. In me you have safety and life eternal, relent and come back to me.”
God Loves us so much, but if we continue to push Him away we live in great danger. He is a gentleman and does not force Himself upon anyone.
Pride was the original sin in the Garden of Eden, and continues to be what each of us struggles with the most. Imagine a world without GOD in it, void of LOVE completely. God is LOVE, and if we turn away from Him our lives are no longer filled with true Love, but instead with our own selfish pride.
“Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT
