Our Undiscouraged God

Re: Verse reading–Ezekiel 10:18-19; 11:22-23; 40:1-2; 43:1-9  (day seven) 
“They defiled my holy name by their detestable practices.  So I destroyed them in my anger.  Now let them put away from me their prostitution and the lifeless idols of their kings, and I will live among them forever.”  (43:8-9)  When the Bible says that “His mercies are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:23) it means the Eternal One is not discouraged or weary with His plan to restore the world.  Our sin has not defeated Him, nor changed His promise, nor weakened His bright resolve!  True, our rebellion has been very costly to us and our children and the cosmos, but THE VICTORY IS AS CERTAIN AS IT HAS EVER BEEN.  What a privilege it is to receive this gracious invitation.  “Put away” the practices of sin!  He will “live among” us forever.  What is out of balance will be restored to an eternal equilibrium.  It is an unchanging offer of grace from an undiscouraged God.
