How grateful I am that our God loves us so deeply. For He has pursued us, His creation since the beginning of time. And even when we turn away from Him, even when we place our faith in worldly things, He patiently waits for our return.
For He knows that these false gods will not bring us happiness. He knows that we will be disheartened and only find misery. It's not as if He hasn't warned us over, and over again. And still He waits.
Finally, when our suffering had become too great, and we return to Him, asking for deliverance, He will sometimes remain silent. And we know, just as these Israelites did in the book of Judges, we need to get rid of our gods of pride, status, money and selfishness. He doesn't need to tell us to do that, we sense it. So let us be freed from them and sincerely cry out again... Deal with us as you see fit.
For He grows weary of watching us in misery. He is ever aware our ills. And He is always sympathetic to our cry.
The Lord is near to the broken hearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit.
