Today, no matter what we have done or haven’t done,
no matter what foolish and destructive choices we have made,

children who will be true to Me”;
(Not only has the Lord declared we belong to Him,
but as a part of the unshakeable covenant of love that He made to us,

and to fulfill our part of the covenant He has made with us.)
and so He became their Savior.
(Knowing that we would never successfully and consistently

He has even provided for that lack, for that inability on our part
by making Himself our Savior and Redeemer,
calling us out of the darkness of our past and present and future
into the abundant life of freedom and victory in Him.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
