Holding Steady

Thought For The Week 75

Then comes the big crash, the plunge into adultery and murder; what a crash!  From the time I was old enough to understand the extent of this fall I have marvelled that Yahweh never withdrew His original statement; never caused it to be recorded that ‘David was a man after His own heart until…’  Yahweh’s assessment of His child remained steady.  Have you ever wondered about this?  We know the Almighty disciplined David because of his disobedience and sin, but He never disowned him, rather He was merciful and gracious towards him.  Why?  Because the quality of mercy is in His nature!  But I have come to understand, too, that the reason Yahweh didn’t cast David aside was because he was willing to acknowledge his sin and repent of his wrongdoing.

There have been times in my life when I have made serious mistakes; when I have been led astray into temptation; when I have let myself (and Yahweh) down badly.  As a result I have wanted to shrivel up and die, or hide out of sight somewhere, and I have wondered if Yahweh could ever use me again.  Do you recognise any of these feelings?  Over the years I have proved the depth of my Father’s mercy and forgiveness as I have grovelled before Him, and I am so grateful for the power of Yahshua’s blood to cleanse me from sin and ‘restore my soul’.  I have learned that, incredibly, Yahweh holds steady to His choices and I am eternally grateful for His unchanging love and that He chose me (see 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2).

Read our latest thought for the week...We Need To Belong

[Yahweh] always does what is good for us. If you believe that he gave his own Son for you, this is what you believe. And all of the Christian life is simply the fruit of that faith. Look to [Yahshua]. Look to the love of [Yahweh]. Live in love. And fear no more.
