GOD’S REMINDER: “If the skies could be measured with a yardstick, and the earth explored to its core, then and only then would I turn My back on Israel, disgusted with all they’ve done.” God’s Decree. Jeremiah 31: 27
NOTE TO SELF: Israel did a lot to provoke God’s anger. Many of us often wonder how God put up with them at all, and Moses begged God not to have to deal with them anymore.
But we tend to forget that their story is our story, too. We are descendants of Abraham, and truthfully, we have inherited all of their flaws and behavioral problems. We are no better.
So when you read today’s Reminder, be encouraged that no matter what we’ve done in the past to deserve God’s wrath and desertion, He promises He won’t turn His back on us. And I love that God uses His own creation as a “measuring stick” of what His promises mean.
