What I Read Today;

1 Corinthians 2; Matthew 18; Ezekiel 4; Psalm 139; 2 Samuel 4

What do you feel when you read the words of Psalm 139?

Do you feel fear?  Are you afraid that God really does know who you are?  How does the fact that God knows what you will say before you say it?  I think of some of my thoughts and words that come out of me, and I cringe in embarrassment.

God knows the most secret thoughts that I have.  God sees into my heart and can root out the anger and hate that reside inside me.  He knew who I would be before he wrote me into existence.

Despite that, God still created me.  Even with my flaws and my stubborn sinful nature, God chose to bring me into existence.  He created each of us knowing our imperfections.  Knowing that in our free will we would fail to live up to God’s standards.

Yet, God gave each of us our very existence.

Why?

God made each one of us, so that we would be His.  God created you and me to worship him.  God gave us life so that we might have fellowship with him.  God wants each of us to choose a life with God.

God yearns for everyone of us to stop fighting the Holy Spirit and turn to Jesus.  He seeks us out.  God runs after us.

What a magnificent and wonderful God we serve.
