Isa 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, He is a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
We get our first glimpse of the Lord’s heart when we read Genesis 3:9 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”. Some would think that God was shouting in an angry manner, but that would not truly convey the heart of the Lord.
He was not shouting at Adam “where are you!”, or shouting, “what have you’ve done!”. The Lord was calling to Adam, like a father who had lost a child. The heart of God was broken over the tragedy of sin. When God called out to Adam, it was in a manner of sobbing, not of anger or vengeance. It was similar to when Christ looked upon Jerusalem and He weeps for how they have rejected His love.
God has a tender heart, full of love and overflowing with mercies.
Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart. These, O God, You will not despise.
It seems God’s heart has been broken, indeed by our sins. And He has been despised and rejected, yet, He keeps on loving us.
Nothing compares to the love of God.
May God’s relentless love be revealed to you everyday.
