It is amazing how gracious God is to us. When we are stubborn he is steadfast in love to us. When we fall into pride he is patient. When we give in to sin, he never gives up on us but continues to work out his will in our lives and he shapes our will so that we will choose him and be workers with him for his pleasure.
