God doesn’t need anyone or anything. Since He isn’t needy, He isn’t a relationship beggar or dictator. Yet, His love compels Him to give all He has.
The prodigal son is a fine example.
He doesn’t give people eternal life in Heaven by force. Jesus is relentlessly patient until the daylight runs out.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with him, and he with Me.”
It didn’t say, I am going to kick in the door and drag you screaming and kicking to that mansion and feast I made for you.
Yet, thankfully He often makes our oats salty. You know the old saying’that you can lead a horse to water and can’t make it drink…but you can by adding some salt makes him more thirsty’.
That is how God often uses providential circumstances and pain to get through to us. He did such for me. That I can testify to.
Time to Pray
Lord, we pray this reader hears Your knock and invites you in to his heart. Only You can complete us.
