God Never Quits

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
 his mercies never come to an end.
  Lamentations 3:22

Many of us have difficulty accepting that God is as generous as He is. When we repeat a failure, we have a tendency to say, "This is it. God is finished with me this time." Actually God is never finished with any of his children. You see, there is not a loophole in God's mercy.

The problem is that we take the feelings that we would have if someone wronged us and apply them to the way we wrong God.  We say, "I would be finished with anyone who did that to me, so God must be finished with me." We take the feelings we have and project them onto God. Nothing could be farther from the truth. God will discipline us if we sin, because he wants us to mature. But he never "drops" us. So we can relax and enjoy God's endless mercies and thank Him for His discipline. God isn't finished with us yet.
