He Loved Us First
God saw us in our unformed state, before He wove us together. He knew the selfish bend in our personas. He was aware of how we could be able to hurt one another. Yet, He loved us anyway.
He foresaw nations waging war on nations, governments bringing out the ire of their people. God watches as nations rise and fall. In spite of all this He allows those forms of government to flourish.
Our God uses great restraint when He sees we haven’t done right in His eyes. He actually forgives us our sins; all we have to do is ask Him to. He also exercises patience and grace to us when we fall away.
The important thing is God loves us, as we are-warts and all. He doesn’t see us as selfish, undisciplined, and mean children. We belong to Him and he loves us, no matter what.
God has prepared a place for us in His home. From the beginning of time, He planned for us to live with Him forever.
