I am always on His mind...
What a thought. We can only think of one thing at a time, but God is all knowing. He can have you on His mind and me on His mind.
He is always working in my life.
And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
We love Him, because He first loved us.
It was not you who started the work. It was Him. He loved you first. He pursued you first.
1 follow (someone or something) in order to catch
• seek to form a relationship with (someone) in a persistent way
• seek to attain or accomplish (a goal), esp. over a long period :
2 (of a person or way) continue or proceed along (a path or route)
• engage in (an activity or course of action)
- continue to investigate, explore, or discuss (a topic, idea, or argument)
He not only is pursuing you, He intends to catch you. He is persistent in His pursuit. He will accomplish His goal. He is patient. He is longsuffering.
There is only one thing that holds up God’s pursuit...That is You...
Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)?
For I am not ashamed of the Gospel (good news) of Christ, for it is God’s power working unto salvation [for deliverance from eternal death] to everyone who believes with a personal trust and a confident surrender and firm reliance, to the Jew first and also to the Greek...
You have to choose to surrender to Him. Choose you this day...
And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
He will not turn anyone away who calls on His name.
And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved...
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God will not stop His pursuit of you as long as you are here on earth. It is His will that all be saved. He is not a quitter. You may think that you have gone too far, or that your sin is too great, think again....He will not leave you nor forsake you. Call on Him today, He is right there...
MHC - Wherever this good work is begun it is of God’s beginning: He has begun a good work in you. We could not begin it ourselves, for we are by nature dead in trespasses and sins: and what can dead men do towards raising themselves to life; or how can they begin to act till they are enlivened in the same respect in which they are said to be dead? It is God who quickens those who are thus dead, Eph. 2:1; Col. 2:13. (3.) The work of grace is but begun in this life; it is not finished here; as long as we are in this imperfect state there is something more to be done. (4.) If the same God who begins the good work did not undertake the carrying on and finishing of it, it would lie for ever unfinished. He must perform it who began it. (5.) We may be confident, or well persuaded, that God not only will not forsake, but that he will finish and crown the work of his own hands.
We did not start this work, nor can we finish this work...
You are always on His mind...
