I wrapped my cloak round you to cowl your nakedness. Ezekiel 16:8

On this passage of scripture, Ezekiel captures the center of a loving Father as we witness Israels plight. God by no means walks away from us, even in our worst state. He covers us and speaks life into us despite our errors. It behooves us to simply accept such nice love.

How do you and I obtain such grace, realizing we aren’t worthy? He has seen us in our weaknesses and but has by no means turned away. Hes witnessed our frailties, our shortcomings, but he nonetheless calls us his personal. He’s the God of the universe, but he nonetheless takes the time to appease and luxury the ache of rejection many people have felt from beginning. Hes witnessed our plight, our cries for assist.

We have been left for lifeless in our sinful states damaged, confused and alone. It was then that God coated us. He has rescued us as a result of he delights in us.

God has taken the time to cradle us and guarantee us of his love, but how typically have we turned away, rejecting that nice love? The Lord knew we’d flip away. He knew we’d not stay trustworthy, however he nonetheless pursued us.

How can we not settle for his nice love? When others turned their backs, he was the one to carry us and console us again to religious well being. He was the one Lord that you simply and I may all the time depend on to be there.

Lets be grateful to be the recipient of a love so robust, so true a love that covers me and also you even after we fail to acknowledge it. What a God we serve!

Father, thanks for seeing me even in my damaged state. Thanks for rescuing me since you delighted in me. Might I by no means take the love, the priority, or the grace that you’ve bestowed upon me as a right. Amen.
