“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”
Jeremiah 31: 3
New International Version

EXPLORATION: Day 7: How God embraces me forever.

“Embrace” – To encircle. To include. To encompass.

“God, slow to get angry, huge in loyal love.”
Numbers 14: 18
The Message

INSPIRATION

For the past five days, we have seen how God embraces us with His watchfulness, protection, comfort, support, and remembrance. What has touched my heart this week is that God, Himself, through His words to us in the Scripture, tells us how much He loves us. These aren’t some hypothetical thoughts we’ve read all week long. These are God’s words straight to our hearts.

I pray that after the past few days of studying, there is no doubt in your mind how much God loves you.

As you reflect on our Heavenly Father’s eternal love, I’d like to leave you with this beautiful poem:

Unending Love

“We are loved
by an unending love.
We are embraced
by arms that find us
even when
we are hidden from ourselves.
We are touched
by fingers that soothe us
even when we are too proud for soothing.
We are counseled
by voices that guide us
even when
we are too embittered to hear.
We are loved
by an unending love.
We are supported
by hands that uplift us
even in
the midst of a fall.
We are urged on
by eyes that meet us
even when
we are too weak for meeting.
We are loved
by an unending love.
Embraced, touched, soothed, and counseled…
…We are loved
by an unending love.”

R. M. Shapiro

May God’s unending love fill every part of your life today.

AFFIRMATION

“How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! Your children take refuge and put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.”
