"Then it shall be, when many evils and troubles have come upon them, that this song will testify against them as a witness; for it will not be forgotten in the mouths of their descendants, for I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them."
Sometimes when we fall into sin we wonder, "How could God forgive me this time?" or "How could God love someone like me?"
But did you catch what today's verse says?
For I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them.
God knew how the children of Israel would be after they entered into the Promised Land. God knew that they would reject Him and start worshipping false idols, but still He loved them and lead then into the Promised Land.
God knew you would mess up and sin; yet He still sent His Son Jesus to die for you. God even knew that you would still mess up after you became a Christian.
But God loves you so much that He is still leading you into the Promised Land, which is heaven, and we'll all be there together someday.
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Yes we all sin and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
But that's not the end of the passage.
Romans 3:24 (NLT) Yet now God in his gracious kindness declares us not guilty. He has done this through Christ Jesus, who has freed us by taking away our sins.
So stop kicking yourself when you mess up, and don't rejoice in your sin, but rather rejoice that you are forgiven through Jesus Christ, no matter what you have done.
Romans 5:11 (NLT) So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God--all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God.
