Let’s be honest, we all have the tendency to give up on people who repeatedly disappoint us. That is, after a certain number of letdowns, we stop trying to improve that person’s condition. We’ve tried everything—we’ve advised, encouraged, rebuked, begged, pressured, assisted, and more. All we get in return are empty promises and repeated disappointment. We can only take so much, and we give up.
Fortunately, “God doesn’t treat us as our sin deserves or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust”(Psalm 103:14).
If I red-listed all the people in the Bible that God didn’t give up on, the caption of this message would need to be truncated. However, it’s important to note that when the world seemed hopelessly, irretrievably lost, God did not “give up” on us; He sent the Savior: “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
If you are a child of God, there is no way that God will give up on you. You have this promise: “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns” (Philippians 1:6).
Now, if you don’t know the God who doesn’t give up on his people, I invite you to make a confession of faith today. If you don’t know how please inbox me and I will walk with you through the steps. It takes last than 60 seconds to become one of God’s own and it will be the best 60 seconds of your life.
Have a bless weekend everyone!
