While in God's Grip!
Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
~ 1 Chronicles 16:11
Two of the most common words used in the Hebrew Scriptures of the Bible involve God's people "turning away" from God and "returning to" God.
If anything this year has taught us is that we must live with the decisions and choices we have made. As we are only days away from Christmas, I would hope our decision to seek out Christ would overwhelm us. Christmas should be a time when we seek the light of Christ, and celebrate the birth of the One who came seeking us.
It is true. There is not a day that goes by that God is not seeking us. "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us." (Psalm 23)
Whether we find ourselves turning away or returning to God, God is already present.
May your day be filled with the encounters of an amazing God!
Stay in God's grip!
