God created you in His image. He made you for love and He wants you to have a love relationship with Him. But you only have two options, either you choose Him or reject Him. When you choose Him, you get to enjoy His love and affection. But when you reject Him, it’s not that He doesn’t love you, you just don’t recognize His love for you. You don’t see it or you simply ignore it.
Nevertheless, your stubbornness doesn’t change God’s character. He is still a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger and abounding in love. He doesn’t want you to perish but He wants to lead you to repentance. There’s always a chance for you to turn to Him and experience a life worth living.
He patiently waits for you to one day realize all the ways He took care of you. How He saw you through. How He hurt when you hurt especially when you’re the one hurting yourself. How he orchestrated divine appointments so that you get to hear about Him or know Him. How He sent people to help you in the darkest days of your life. He’s been there since the day you were born and He’s been loving you even though you never saw it.
I’m praying for you. As you read this, may God lift up the veil so that you may see and encounter His deep love for you and realize the many ways He saved your life. May He speak to your heart and bring you to your knees with this prayer:
“God, forgive me for not seeing your love and rejecting you. Today, I choose to love you and have a relationship with you. I want to seek you with all my heart. Please reveal yourself to me.”
