"Turning Away" and "Returning To" God
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.
As I've often shared, there truly is nothing new about the human race.
If anything this year has taught us is that we must live with the decisions and choices we have made, but in our doing so, what has been the result?
We are just days away from Christmas. 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.
Stay in God's grip!
