Law and Grace
God is faithful and trustworthy not because we reciprocate those things... but because He IS FAITHFUL and HE IS trustworthy.
His character is entirely His own and is not affected in any way by what we do or don’t do.
Why is that important? Because we mess up all the time. And His love and faithfulness to His people is not based on how much we mess up! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Coming Full Circle
This one was a remake from Diana Willis Livestream over on the His Palette FB Group. We worked in the book of Esther.. The story of Esther is one of great hope, wisdom, and meticulous planning. How she began her way into the palace of the King and the circumstances she endured to save her people are a miraculous tale of not only God's grace- but a perfect depiction of how His will comes full circle in His timing.
Hope Together In All Things
14 Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away the judgments against you; he has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil.
16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Fear not, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak.
17 The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
18 I will gather those of you who mourn for the festival, so that you will no longer suffer reproach.[c]
19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all your oppressors.
