God never loses hope in us! Israel was never consistent in its behavior and obedience to God. Every act of disobedience carries consequences. As much as God loves us, sometimes the consequences cannot be waived.
Even when God imposes judgment on Israel’s actions, He maintains hope that His people will learn and return to Him. In fact, God leaves the door open for that reconciliation to take place. In the midst of reading all the symptoms of the judgement of God, He promises a plan of restoration.
You may have had to endure the consequences of your disobedience. Don’t lose hope because God hasn’t. He is hopeful that you will turn to Him. When you do that, God will wash away all the filth of the past and position you to walk forward into a bright future. Don’t give up on your future because God hasn’t. He is cheering for you to make a comeback.
