2 Samuel 7.15
But I'll never remove my gracious love from him
oh yes we encourage ourselves deeply in this! we water our soul from the depths of this great promise, this amazing line! you will never remove your gracious love from us even in the midst of showering us with blessing or disciplining us to grow more like you - all with the heart to bless others and overflow your nourishment to them, so we could love them just as you have loved us first. nothing, truly nothing is impossible with you because we can never do this on our own. when we look beyond our self though and look to you we can do greater things than when you walked the earth in flesh. wow, jesus!
