Faithful, but Fierce

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, (Deuteronomy 7:9 ESV)

The God I serve is a faithful God. He keeps His word. He fulfills His promises. He is gracious and kind, benevolent and merciful.

There is no god like God. Generation after generation has benefited from His covenant love. But, make no mistake, the same covenant love that is described as faithful is also fierce.

God is not careless or crude, nor will He permit me to be so. His ways and thoughts are Holy – entirely set apart from mine.

In His presence I am keenly aware of my frailties – my sin. But His grace is greater still.

He does not ignore sin.
He redeems me from it.

He does not lower His standard of righteousness.
He became Man so He could pay the necessary price to give me His righteousness.

He is God.
I am not.
Yet, He loves me.

Thank You, Father. Today I receive Your covenant love!
