The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. I will build you up again and you will be re-built” — Jeremiah 31:3.
God’s love continues to amaze me. The definition of the word “everlasting” means eternal, continuing indefinitely or for a long period of time, tedious, never coming to an end. That’s a long time! He draws us with loving-kindness. I don’t know of anyone else here on earth that cares and continues to love me unconditionally even when I mess up.
No matter what I’ve done in the past, God stands by to build me up again. This knowledge gives me the courage to get up and try again.
Do you feel defeated today? You are not alone. Tell it to Jesus; he already knows and cares and waits for your return.
