God’s love and forgiveness is overwhelming. When we are overcome by our own sins, mistakes, fears and hurts, God longs to comfort us and care for us.
Through the death and resurrection of His Son, He has made a way for us to be reconciled to Him. We don’t have to wallow in selfpity when we feel we have blown it or sinned against Him. All we need to do is to take some time out, pray to Him, sleep, eat, rest and then wait for Him to speak to us.
God ‘does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities’ (Psalm 103:10). Our God is ‘compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love’ (Psalm 103:8).
God is gracious. Grace is ‘the free and unmerited favour of God shown towards man’. God’s love is unconditional.
