Forgiving God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Genesis 26:12-14

Isaac wasn't perfect. Neither was his father, Abraham, before him. But God doesn't ask us for perfection (which is unattainable this side of heaven, by the way). He asks us to obediently follow and serve Him. And when we do this, even though there will be bumps along the way (because, remember, we're not perfect), God will shower His blessings on us in many different ways--watching over us, protecting and guiding us, giving us joy, providing for our needs.

I couldn't help but smile as I read our three verses for today which show a God who loves us and doesn't hold back forgiveness when we seek it. We aren't privy to the details of the exchange between Isaac and God, but God forgave Isaac for lying about Rebekah, and the relationship between Isaac and God grew even stronger as a result.

What are some of the ways God has blessed you as you've followed him (bumps and all)? When you ask God for forgiveness, how does it impact you? How does it impact your relationship with God? Tami

I'm constantly amazed by God's faithfulness to forgive.

God blessed me with salvation forever through Jesus Christ,for by grace you are saved through faith, not my faith ,it is a gift, it is the faith of Jesus, the faithfulness of Jesus ,the faithful obedience of Jesus to fullfill His Father's plan to reconcile ALL MANKIND and all creation to Himself by gathering all things in heaven and all things in earth to himself in Christ.Knowing God forgives me whether I ask for it or don't ask for it. God forgave me of all my sins because Of Jesus Just like Saul intent on murder was transformed by Jesus,not because Saul asked for it,but by the same Mercy of God that shut up All in disobedience that He will give Mercy ...undeserved forgiveness to all.This gives me assurance in Jesus That I am saved by the work of God alone ..not my good works nor my faith but the faith obedience of Jesus the savior of the world.
