God is always calling us back to him
Have you ever rebelled against God? My wayward children,” says the Lord, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.“ Jeremiah 3:22 NLT
“Create in me a new heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me… Restore to me again the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.” Psalm 41:10,12
Rebellion is like a great tug-of-war; the authoritative figure holds one end of the rope while the rebel pulls on the other. This is the trap that satan loves to use on the body of Christ. (John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.) The adversary lays the trap and sometimes we as Christians fall for it. Hence, we rebel against God’s righteous decrees and precepts! God pulls on the rope, not to ruin our lives, but to lead us toward safe footing. (Isaiah 48:17 This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.)THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Psalm 42:8
By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life AMEN
