Extravagant Redemption

God desires to redeem you.  Do you really believe that?  I mean REALLY?  Sometimes we fail to understand the intensity with which God pursues us.  He is relentless and passionate about redeeming people.  His motive is love and it covers our sin, our circumstances, our past and our present.  He has paid the ultimate price of His son Jesus to accomplish this.

God is at work in the circumstances of our lives to bring us to a place of redemption.  We can be sure that he is working out his plan in our lives and that he is not disengaged or uninterested in our everyday happenings.  When life throws us a curve we can be sure that God’s purpose is still going to be accomplished.  True, we may not always understand our circumstances, but God often works “outside the box” to reflect people back to him.

Are you frustrated? Do you feel alone? Do you feel insignificant?  If so, remind yourself that the God of the universe has gone to incredible lengths to redeem you and show his love to you and he longs to show you himself.   REALLY.
