God is not fickle, but I am.

God is steadfast.  But I am too often wobbly knees and willing to consider an easier way.

God is a warrior.  Sometimes I slip into an easy chair and lose myself in Facebook posts that tell me what I want to hear.

God is persistent.  I can give up, sometimes just short of victory.

God is love.  And I am sometimes unlovely… very unlovely, but He loves me anyway.

You see He has adopted me into His family. And family is of paramount importance to God.  He will do anything for His children.  Even when we misbehave He pursues us.  Because God is persistent.

When the world, the flesh, and the devil seek to draw me away and I am losing the fight, God steps in and rescues me.  He has my back because He is a warrior and that’s what a warrior does.  He fights for those He loves.

When I am weak and exposed, when I can barely stand, it’s okay because He lifts me up.  His mighty right arm undergirds me and I know the One who is my God, my King.

And when I consider how many times I fall short of loving Him like He has loved me, when I miss out on an opportunity to demonstrate His grace to others, when I am self absorbed and fickle, I wonder how He can stand me.  But He does.

Because God’s not fickle… even if you are…

He is steadfast. He is a warrior. He is persistent.  And He loves you with an everlasting love.  Lean into His love today.
