So Easy To Love You Lord
Just stop what you are doing. Whatever it is, just stop and think about your past few months. Reflect on the circumstances you were troubled with. Now, think about how many times you called on The Lord and soon after you were comforted to deal with that situation that flesh was screaming you couldn’t handle.
Let me take it a little further.
Think about how many times we were disobedient, doing what “self” wanted to do and not what God intended? You barely read your bible. You hardly prayed. You complained, argued,and you were selfish in your ways.
Stop right there.
Let me pose this question: Did God forsake you when you called out for help in any of your troubles?
You don’t have to think hard for an answer.
Even when we mess up and are sometimes heading left versus right, God is still merciful and He cares so heavily. We are so hard on ourselves when we say,”God won’t help me with this, I have been disobedient for a while now.”
However, He [God] is merciful and is easily pleased by us. There’s no need to condemn ourselves anymore. God has great thoughts about us and through His son Jesus Christ, He wants us to prosper and not be casted away from Him.
In writing this, the song Easy To Love You by Israel Houghton comes to mind. The lyric in mind goes a little like this,
“…It’s so easy to love you, it’s so easy to love you because you are WONDERFUL…”
– and that’s what the Father is!
Beloved, no more being hard on yourself going forward. God is easily pleased and He makes it easy to Love Him because He is Wonderful, Marvelous and Glorious.
He is our FRIEND.
