He never gives up

2 Samuel 14:14 All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God does not just sweep life away; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him. (NLT)

Have you ever noticed this about God?  If you read the Old Testament, you will see that God is always finding creative new ways to bring His people back to Him.  It seems as though He won’t give up on humanity.  He continues to pursue us.  He desires to bring us back to Him when we have been separated.

There’s this R & B song that declares, “whatever I said, whatever I did, I didn’t mean it.  I want you back, I want you back for good.”  God’s like that with us, except we are the ones who said and did something wrong.  But He keeps loving us.  He keeps chasing us.   He wants us to know Him and be in relationship with Him.  He doesn’t want to see us cut off, stuck with death as our only option.

That’s why He sent His Son.  It was the ultimate plan to bring us back.  And it is His last and final plan.  Life is found through Jesus; relationship with God comes by Him.  Today, I rejoice in the heart of our God.  He made a way that I could be with Him.  So I will take Him up on that offer today.  I will choose to live my life to the fullest knowing Him and dwelling in all that Christ has offered me.

    Reading that I thought of my children and seeing my younger siblings growing up… myself and my siblings continuously did and some still do things that are opposite of what mom and dad ask of us, why? Just to prove we are our own person; you cant control me. you don’t understand you are not living this life at this time… Why do we think we know so much, but as so young ? Why don’t we trust the ones who love us most?? Why would our parents want to bring harm to us?? Why would God want to lead us in the wrong direction??? And how, what can I do as a mom to have my kids understand, and know in their hearts that I and God want the best for them?
