Good morning people who understand the heart of God towards you.
1 Samuel 12:22 NIV For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own.
What a powerful and beautiful verse!
The Lord’s reputation is so important. God’s long-suffering, patience and mercy towards us is for His name’s sake. This is such an essential truth that needs to be understood and embraced.
We often feel unworthy – as we are – and therefore, we make receiving forgiveness from the Lord about us; about what we need – and we do need forgiveness.
But we must be realigned that it is first and foremost about the Lord and His name’s sake.
When we do not accept and walk in God’s forgiveness, yes we harm ourselves, but we also dishonour His name.
We must also come into a deeper revelation that the Lord was pleased to make us His own. This is powerful and life-giving!
He is not a reluctant God. He takes pleasure in calling us His own! He is delighted that we are His sons and daughters.
It’s time to be realigned to the truth of God’s reputation through us and God’s desire for us.
