God Understands Us

We should revel in the joy of believing that God is the sum of all patience and the true essence of kindly good will! Because He is what He is, we please Him most, not by frantically trying to make ourselves good but by throwing ourselves into His arms with all our imperfections and believing that He understands everything and loves us still. The God who desires our fellowship and communion is not hard to please, although He may be hard to satisfy. He expects from us only what He has Himself supplied. When He must chasten us, He even does this with a smile—the proud, tender smile of a Father who is bursting with pleasure over an imperfect son who is coming every day to look more and more like the One whose child he is! This is the best of good news: God loves us for ourselves. He values our love more than He values galaxies of newly created worlds. He remembers our frame and knows that we are dust!

Verse

God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16

Thought

This is the best of good news: God loves us for ourselves.

Prayer

Thank You, Lord, for remembering that we are but dust and loving us anyway. Teach us to love others as You have loved us.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
