Longing to be gracious
God longs to be gracious to us. God looks for opportunities to bless us. This is what Isaiah says:
"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!"
This is a far cry from the picture of God people try to paint - God is only out to get us. Or God is looking for ways to punish us. I think I prefer Isaiah's picture of God.
What about you?
Living in Grace
