“I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me…”

How sweet it is to be loved by God! No matter how stubborn we are, no matter how disobedient we may be, he is just always there to embrace us in His love. His promises are just sooooo full of grace and love, no matter how much He hates the attitude that we are giving Him.

I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you. Isaiah 44:22
This promise just makes me cry a bucket of tears. And if that’s not heart-breaking (in a good way) enough, he says:
Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are now far from my righteousness. I am bringing my righteousness near, it is not far away; and my salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel. Isaiah 46:12-13
Ahhh! God is indeed the best lover of all! He gives us this promises that no matter how broken, how wretched, how dirty we are in front of Him, He is still there for us! Now, where in the world could you find such love? He just loves us so much to the point that He willingly gave His Son for us to be saved! This just reminds me that we can never find comfort in the company of friends, even our our family, but it is only in Him that we can find rest and peace in our lives. So soak in His presence, meditate on His Word at all times, and you will find the best comfort and the best resting place in the world and you would never want to leave Him.
