God Chose love

July 7, 2023

Deuteronomy 7:7
Yahweh didn’t set his love on you nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all peoples

Deuteronomy 7:7-8 “Yahweh didn’t set his love on you nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all peoples; but because Yahweh loves you, and because he desires to keep the oath which he swore to your fathers, Yahweh has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.”

God’s love for us is an unconditional love. There is nothing we have done or can do to “attract” His love for us. Israel learned that truth in these verses. If God was looking for a prosperous and powerful nation to call His own, He had many choices beyond the seemingly small and insignificant Israel, but prosperity and power wasn’t important to God. He chose Israel because He loved them and because He was committed to being faithful to the promises he had made to their ancestors. In the same way, God loves you – unconditionally and faithfully. You don’t need to earn His love. He loves you just as you are.
