Will God Give Up on Me?
God’s heart is hidden behind our misconceptions, the misunderstanding of historical context of the Bible, our lack of maturity, and our tendency to make God in our image. It’s no wonder we ask the question, “Will God give up on me?”
I pray that according to the riches of God’s glory, that He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the strength to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ, the love that surpasses all knowledge, and that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:16-19
Never forget that He loves you enough to do what’s best for you. He brings you to spacious places as well as the trials of suffering so that you grow and mature into a man or woman after God’s own heart.
Lay aside your questioning and hold out your hands to receive His love, forgiveness, and mercy. His love for you unfolds as you lean on His understanding and not your own. Come to Him just as you are and there you will find the largeness of the Christian life as He molds you, shapes you, teaches you His forgiveness, and helps you learn to live this life as a believer in Christ.
