God’s Devising

God’s Devising

2 Samuel 14:14Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead He devises ways so that a banished person may not be estranged from Him. (NIV 1978)

My Musing – Likely a prophecy of Christ. But it works on different levels as well. God is not content when we wander away from Him. He takes the initiative and devises ways to restore us. While it is ultimately up to us to respond to Him, He continues to pursue us.

My Advice – Always be on the look out for God’s mercy and grace. Don’t over fixate on negative consequences. Look at it as a way that God has devised to end whatever distance is between you.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
