Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O LORD.
Psalms 25:7 (NLT)
So much of our negative behavior is the result of false beliefs about ourselves. To sin or to be caught in sin only confirms these negative beliefs or lies that we already have. And the pain of being reminded of how we perceive ourselves causes us put on masks or act religious – anything but let others see who we believe ourselves to be. But is that really who we are? God does not think so. He is not the one who has called you a loser, no good, damaged goods or a mistake. God knows exactly who you are, and He loves you. How? He remembers you in the light of His unfailing love. Today, go and do likewise. See yourself and others through the eyes of God’s unfailing love.
Dear Father, how I long to love like You. Not just loving others, but loving myself as well. Thank You for Your mercy, Your grace, and Your unconditional love toward me. In Jesus’ name.
