No matter where we are or what we lack God’s love for us is steadfast

No matter where we are or what we lack God’s love for us is steadfast

God’s Promise - When I need assurance that God loves me 

Recently I visited my great-aunt/Nana, and found this tiny (literally fit in the center of your palm) Bible that read “The Tiny Bible Promises”. 
I gently asked her if I could have it, and she responded (as she always does) “You can have anything in this house, including me.” She is the sweetest. She will never know the impact of the tiny gift she gave me. 

One of the powerful nuggets I have taken from this Tiny Bible of God’s unfailing promises is that no matter where we are, who we are, what we lack, what we desire to accomplish… God’s love for us is steadfast. It remains. 

Being human, we often lose sight of how much we are loved by our Savior. 
When we need assurance that God loves us, The Tiny Bible Promises refers to the book of Psalms and Romans for gentle reminders: 

“For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.” Psalm 86:5 ESV

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Psalm 103:8 ESV

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103: 11-12 ESV

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 ESV


God Almighty loves you! Bask in that!

Mephibosheth, whose name means “shame”, was the son of Jonathon and the grandson of King Saul. He was a crippled man living in a dry wasteland called Lo-Debar which means “no pastures.” He was living there because when he was just 5 years old, news spread that his dad and granddad, Jonathan and Saul, were both killed. The remainder of Saul’s family could only assume that with the new King David coming into power, they would all be killed off next, so they fled in fear to become exiles and ene...

We can find biblical hope for this struggle when we consider the story of the Israelites’ exile in the Old Testament. The afflictions of the Israelites’ exile were two-fold. On one hand, they were exiled because of their own sin, and on the other hand, their burdens were increased because of the sin of the nations oppressing them. I am certain that if I were an exiled Israelite, I would have been grumbling and throwing pity parties the majority of the time. How does God respond to them? Throu...
