“O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with Him is full redemption.” – Psalm 130:7
God’s love never fails. God’s love forgives; and God’s love redeems. He is the only One worthy, as He is our whole and holy hope.
Only the loving Lord can take our tragedies and turn them to triumphs, as we trust in Him. He takes our faults and failures, forgives us, and again calls us clean. How can we help but hold our hope in Him?
He, the One who loves us so much that He was willing to give up His only Son to suffer our shame, bear our sin and stains, so that we could be covered in righteousness and redeemed before Him, and is way more than worthy of our whole heart. In Him, new life is made possible, despite the impossibilities that surround us. He hears, He sees, He loves, and He redeems, as He is the giver of every good gift we are granted.
He asks for our hope and our heart, and in return, He redeems our wreckage and raises us up, calling us His sons and daughters, granting us a holy heritage and the hope of our eternal heavenly home with Him.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your love is unfailing and unending, and is available and abundant for all who ask. Thank You that in Your perfect love, You made way for not only our forgiveness, but for our redemption, so that we might be completely restored to a right relationship with You. Thank You Lord that You are worthy of all worship, and that You hold our every hope in Your holy hands. Teach us, lead us, forgive and love us, so that we might walk in full acceptance of Your unfailing love and remarkable redemption, as we share the hope held in You, our Heavenly Father. Amen.
