Psalm 23:6 “Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.”
King David knew that God’s unfailing love would pursue him know matter what. His love was never going to stop, and this is why we see David proclaim this in this Psalm. He knew just like we know. God never stops pursuing us even when we are not pursuing him. We can’t get away from the fact that he loves us, but there are definitely times when we run away from the fact that he is absolutely crazy about us.
In Romans 8:35-37 it states, “35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or are hungry or cold or in danger threatened with death? 36 (Even the scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
I think this scripture hits it right on the dot. Things of this world push us away from his love, but he never intended for these things to happen. We may get mad at God at times for things, but God does not want to hurt you. Satan is the one that wants you to feel hurt, and God is the one that wants to draw you closer to his heart. The enemy is the king of deception, and wants you to be mad at God. The enemy wants you to put the blame on God.
In this scripture above it states “despite all these things, overwhelming is ours through Christ, who loved us. “ This is why God sent his son Jesus to die for us. He knew that we would feel hurt, trouble, cold, hungry, threatened with death, and persecuted. He also knew this that he was not going to let you suffer. God wore all these burdens on the cross, and His unfailing love is why we have hope and victory is ours through Christ.
Question: Are you mad at God in any way? Do you need to lay your burdens at the cross?
