It is absolutely amazing to me that God the Creator and Sustainer of life would want to have a personal relationship with me! I know He created me and I know He loves me, but it is still crazy to me that He would want a relationship with me, because I know me and I don’t even want to have a relationship with myself sometimes!
I know me! I know that my selfish ambition and spiritual apathy sometimes get in the way of the relationship and steal my passion for Him! I know that I am a sinner, who misses the mark. I know I do things I shouldn’t do and I fail to do things that I should do! I know me and I know that I am not worthy of being loved the way God loves me, but I also know God and I know that He loves me regardless!
I know God and I know that He initiates a change of heart in me that drives me to desire for a closer relationship with Him. He points out the ways in me that get in the way of our relationship and His Holy Spirit convicts me of sin, not so that I will feel guilty, but so that I can get free!
When I confess my sin and seek restoration, God is always right there ready and waiting! He always shows me the way to a better place of relationship with Him. God often takes the initiative to set our relationship right by giving us a change of heart! How amazing is that?
No matter how many times we wander away, God is always right here waiting to take us back and restore us into a right relationship with Him! Simply amazing! Don’t take it for granted and don’t put it off. Embrace your change of heart and make your way back to Him – you will be glad you did!
