“Now you repented, you did what is right from My viewpoint when each of you proclaimed freedom to his fellow; and you made a covenant before Me in the house bearing My name.”
But then you changed your minds. You profaned My name when each of you took back his male and female slaves, whom you had set free to live as they wished, and brought them back into subjection as your slaves.”
Jeremiah 34:15-16 CJB
How often do we do the same thing? We make a promise to the LORD, and the very next thing we do is break that promise! How does that make the LORD feel? It’s like children promising that they will be good, clean their room or not hit their sibling and then the very next second they do the opposite of what they promised! The parent is disappointed, but still loves their child, so does the LORD, even after we blow it!
“For Your grace is great, above heaven, and your truth, all the way to the skies.”
Psalm 108:4 CJB
Realize, the love that the LORD has for us is unending, it never fails! It is us who fail when we take our eyes off of Him! We make promises then we look at the situation, instead of the LORD and that’s when we blow it!
“The grace (Love) of Adonai (LORD) is not exhausted, that His compassion has not ended. On the contrary, they are new every morning! How great Your faithfulness!”
Lamentations 3:22-23 CJB
We all, at one time or the other, have promised, LORD, I’ll do this, or I won’t go there and the very next second; we say, do, or go where we promised, we wouldn’t! We blow it! Remember, the LORD, still loves us, so repent and just move on in the LORD! Have a blessed day keeping your eyes on Jesus!
