“But let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
Suppose one of your children was injured and crying out for your help. As his parent, would you immediately rush to his aid or would you stop to analyze the quality of his trust in you? You would run to his side without hesitation, of course, motivated by love and concern.
What kind of earthly father would leave a child bleeding and hurt simply because the child didn’t voice some kind of faith in him? And the same can be said of our heavenly Father. He will never leave one of his children to suffer alone or shut his ear to their cry simply because their faith in him may be weak.
“If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself” (2 Timothy 2:13).
My faith, your faith, all faith must rest on the kindness and concern of our heavenly Father; we are commanded to glory in his love and everlasting kindness.
“But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight” (Jeremiah 9:24).
God loves his children so much that he hears before they call. That is why David prayed, “Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O Lord, revive me according to Your justice” (Psalm 119:149).
So many Christians have difficulty grasping the great love of God for them. He loves you and comes to your rescue even when your faith is weak, when you don’t deserve any answer from him — all because of his tenderness and compassion.
“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy” (Psalm 103:8).
Great peace will flood your life when you become convinced that God deeply loves you. He will rescue you and intervene in every situation of your life. Weak faith or not, nothing can hinder his pure love for you!
