...the goodness of God leads you to repentance. (Romans 2:4, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In the natural, when weve wronged someone, sometimes its easier to avoid them than to face the discomfort or potential rejection. It isnt surprising that people sometimes have this same approach to God. Have you ever heard someone say, If I walk into a church, the roof will cave in? They think they should keep their distance because of what theyve done. But nothing could be further from the truth! Gods not mad at you; Hes madly in love with you! Hes waiting for you with open arms. It doesnt matter who you are or what youve done; know that His goodness is whats drawing you to Him.
Today, dont let condemnation keep you from turning to God. Trust His kindness. Trust that He wants you to experience His goodness. He wants to show you His faithfulness. Hes promised Hell never leave you nor forsake you. Turn to Him today and let Him pour His loving kindness on you and empower you to walk in victory all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me. Thank You for Your kindness that draws me. I come to You today giving You all that I am. Make me new in Jesus name. Amen.
