“As a father is kind to his children, so the Lord is kind to those who honor Him. He knows what we are made of; He remembers that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:13-14, GN)
As a parent, you love your children at every stage of their development. You don’t wait until they can walk, read, or ride a bicycle before you love them. If you are a child of God, He loves you at every stage of your development, too. His love is unconditional. It’s not based on what you do or don’t do.
You can receive and relax in God’s love. If you have accepted Christ’s sacrifice on the cross as your salvation, when God looks at you, He doesn’t see your failures or shortcomings. He sees Jesus, His one and only perfect Son.
God loves you right now, just as you are, and He will patiently guide you to become all that He intends for you to be. Praise God today for His amazing…and relaxing grace.
