“Nope. Not this time. I’ve already given you too much and look what you did with it. You’re not worthy of anything that I have for you.”
Maybe you’ve convinced yourself that this is God’s reaction when you come to Him seeking forgiveness. We might feel this way because that might be our reaction if we were given that position of authority. We’d be just like the brother of the prodigal son.
Thankfully we don’t answer to the brother. We answer to The Father. A merciful God that rejoices when His children come to Him. A Father that extends mercy and grace no matter what the situation may be.
If we aren’t careful we can be guilty of trying to put a humanistic attitude on a sovereign God.
