Sometimes we can go around thinking that God is so disappointed with us all the time. It’s true that we make mistakes. And we’re not supposed to be lighthearted about them—we are to take them seriously.But in spite of our mistakes, God has hope for us and knows that He can change us if we’ll stay in His Word.
The Father does not want to function merely as an impersonal Source of information and provision or a distant Commander shouting instructions. He wants to be involved in our lives in the most profound way, through a relationship that is based on faith and trust.
