No matter the miracles God performed, the blessings He bestowed, or the rescues He delivered, Israel repeatedly turned against Him. Yet though they were disloyal and disobedient, God never abandoned His chosen people. And all because of His everlasting love. A love that He generously gives to all who love Him, including us.
And just like Israel, when we turn away from God, He never turns away from us. He may discipline us, distant Himself from us, or allow us to suffer the consequences of our actions. But He will never forsake us or stop loving us. For His love is perfect, true, and everlasting. And out of that love, no matter who we are or what we do, when we come to Him in repentance, Go will always restore us back to Himself. So in the midst of troubles and trials, we can find joy knowing that when we run to God, He will welcome us with open arms.
