The theme for today’s Turning Point daily devotional by Dr. David Jeremiah is ”Rediscover God’s Love” and it is a message designed for today’s spiritual growth and enhancement.
Scripture: You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: Fear not, for I am with you.
Rejection is a punch in the stomach. We all know the feeling, and some rejections can impact our mental health. Being rejected by a parent is hurtful beyond description. Imagine the pain of a young man whose marriage proposal is rejected. We can fall into depression when a college rejects our application or an employer hires someone else for the job we wanted.
The Lord will never reject us when we come to Him needing His grace. Even when we sin, God’s love for us remains. Thank Him that His love doesn’t stop even when we fail Him.
Maybe you’ve done something that makes you feel so unworthy or guilty you think the Lord cannot or will not forgive you. He is more willing to forgive you than you are to seek His forgiveness! Come to Him in humble repentance, confess your sin, trust His grace, and rediscover His love.
Jesus was despised and rejected by men (Isaiah 53:3) that you might be accepted and embraced by God.
Through Christ, you have forgiveness…. The guilt you continue to carry around because of past sins is unnecessary.
