BIBLE VERSE FOR WEDNESDAY
Tuesday, October 15, 2019
I (Jesus) will deliver you (Paul) from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you.
Much theological ink has been used through the ages in an attempt to answer this question: Does man seek God or does God seek man? If Romans 3:11b wasn't clear enough--"There is none who seeks after God"--examples from Scripture show, at the least, that it is God who seeks after man even when man is most resistant.
Two examples: When the apostle Paul was in his mot hateful state, going to Damascus to persecute Christians, Jesus sought him and confronted him--and ultimately changed and saved him (Acts 9:1-19). And being a worshiper pf the God of the Jews was the last thing on the mind of the prideful king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4:28-33), But God revealed Himself to Nebuchadnezzar, who humbled himself before Him (verses 34-37). God is a seeking God: pride, anger, and unbelief are not obstacles for Him.
If you--or someone you love-find yourself "away" from God today, know this. He knows where you are and wants you to know where He is. He is always as close as a prayer. Even if you find prayer a challenge, know that He is near you., with you, beside you, seeking a closer relationship with you.
Thank you Spark Friends for coming to my blog and posting your comments. Sending God's richest blessings to you and your families so He will show out His Ultimate Love, Compassion and Comfort in good times and in times of trouble. God will never leave you nor forsake you, but will continue to walk with you, leading you down paths of righteousness until you come to be with Him in heaven. God bless you. I am praying for you in Jesus's Most Precious Name, Amen.
