“Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” (Jeremiah 31:3 NLT)
God reaches toward his people with kindness motivated by deep and everlasting love. He is eager to do the best for them if they will only let him. After many words of warning about sin, this reminder of God’s magnificent love is a breath of fresh air. Rather than thinking of God with dread, look carefully and see him lovingly drawing us toward himself. ( Tyndal Study Bible)
This is what unbelievers don’t understand – God loves us. Here is an open invitation to accept His love at any time. That invitation is not only for the Israelites but to all people in the world. The second thing that stands out is that God is eager to the best for us if we allow him. In other words accepting Him as our saviour. For the believer when we draw closer to Him.
There are many times when God tries to bring us closer to Him, and we should all listen to His call. People encounter God’s love, what we do with it is up to us. Again it is that “choice thing.” all we need to do is listen, not to evil, and make the right choices.
We have opportunities daily to accept God’s invitation. If you do accept, you will realise that all things are possible with God. He is eager to do the best for each of us.
I am personally going through a very tough time. Was in a bad space today. What I seem to forget or neglect is to Pray and rely on God for understanding and wisdom. We are easily led astray by worldly influences and negative people and things. Get close to God and rely on His understanding. The good will be revealed to you.
Don’t wait for your darkest hour, do it now. Rely on God – He makes it easy.
“Lord, I pray all people accept Your invitation. May I help to reach as many as possible. In Jesus name. Amen. “
