He Loves Us Too Much!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Hosea 11:8b

“My heart is changed within me; all my compassion is aroused.”

O-bservation:

God’s anger had burned toward Israel for her many idolatries. But in the middle of all His proclamations, He stopped and said, “How can I do this, I love you too much to destroy you!”

A-pplication:

It’s hard not to relate this passage to my relationship with my sons. If you’re a parent, like me, I’m sure there were times you just wanted to _______ (fill in the blank) … your kids! But in the end you loved them too much! In this context, Israel had for some long time rebelled against the Lord. It was almost as if they did whatever they could do to arouse the anger of the Lord. There was a time in many of our lives where the circumstance was similar. Regardless of what God’s Word said … we went against it. I know in my own life He should have done away with me long ago. Maybe you feel the same way today. Here’s what you need to know, “He Loves Us Too Much!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m reaffirming my love to You. But I know there’s really no comparison. You love me way too much. For that I am thankful. Amen
