God is a God of coming back

In the midst of encouraging a friend this evening I just need to write these words. Perhaps they will reach you in a time of hopelessness.

God is a God of coming back, a God waiting with open arms…

At the point you don’t feel like you can’t crawl back the 1200th time THAT is exactly when you should fall before him and confess.

Confess who you are, confess who He is,

and cling to the cross of Christ which satisfies the scales of justice and opens the door to mercy. Pour it all out on Abba Father and surrender all pride. His mercy has no limit and His grace is sufficient.

An excerpt of an amazing prayer, “Meeting God” from the Valley of Vision.

(null)

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile. (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11-14‬ ESV)

Amen.
