SUMMARY: Unfailing love
OVERVIEW: We can look to God for restoration and revival, but we need to obey, be faithful, and pursue righteousness.
BIG IDEA: Salvation is available to those who want it.
KEY VERSE: Psalm 85:6–7
Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I have shown you kindness by providing for your family and offering forgiveness of your sin. And I will always restore and revive your heart when you desire. You never have to search for me. I am here. I am the one who waits on you. I offer my unfailing love. There’s no need to work for it or try to overcome temptations on your own, hoping I’ll show my approval. Through Christ, you are approved. You are my child and that will never change.
Let me teach you how to truly live. I want you to listen for my voice and follow me. Learn the power of love and kindness. Develop skill in choosing the right words, ones that will lift others up rather than tear them down. Look to me for life. Learn to hunger for what I offer and develop dissatisfaction with what the world offers. This is life. Walk with me. Seek me. And each day I will teach you more.
Thank God for his unfailing love. Ask God to empower you to live faithfully today. Ask him to uncover anything that is hindering your relationship with him, and take action on what God reveals.
