Gratituesday – God’s Pursuit for Us
We have a beautiful little toddler who is full of life and energy. He is at that age where he loves getting into everything. Yesterday, I was emptying the dishwasher he managed to get a butter knife and decided to take off with it. I was in hot pursuit to get it away from him. He totally thought it was funny that I was chasing after him. I was able to get it away from him before he hurt himself.
Later in the day, I started writing this post and it made me think about how the Lord is in pursuit of us.
Since creation, God has longed for a relationship with us. Then very shortly after, sin enters the world and ever since God has had a plan to make it right again. Throughout the Old Testament we see the Israelites make mistakes over and over again. Even though there were consequences, God still pursued them! Then He sends Jesus to make the way for us to be in constant communication with Him. And lastly, He is coming back for His children to make everything perfect again.
The same is true for us as Christians, we make mistakes time and time again, and even though there are consequences, God still pursues us. He gives us unconditional love and grace.
I’m so grateful that we have a loving Father who pursues each and every one of us. I’m grateful for the friends, family and acquaintances He has placed in my life to help me see Him even better. I’m thankful for His word (the Bible) and that it can encourage me and guide me, that way I can love my family and friends the way Jesus did.
God is in pursuit of you too my friend. He’s right beside you every single day, call on Him no matter what. He loves us all no matter what we do.
Every good and perfect gift comes from Him.
