Do you believe God is kind? Always? Unfailingly?
Do you believe he cares about you, and has your best interests at heart?
Do you believe he is the sovereign King of your life (as opposed to a genie designed to grant your every wish)?
Do you trust him?
Do you want to please him – or is your relationship conditional on what he does for you?
Have you considered that what you want most in life might not be what he wants for you?
Can you see that closed doors are sometimes the biggest blessings?
Do you sense his everlasting love and unfailing kindness even in the darkest of times and the most precarious of situations?
Do you want God? Do you desire intimacy with him rather than a purely intellectual experience?
And how will you cultivate closeness?
What will you do today to demonstrate your love? How will you respond to his love for you?
“The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
– Jeremiah 31:3
