God wants His children Back
Even an ox knows its owner, and a donkey recognises its master’s care—
but Israel doesn’t know its master. My people don’t recognize my care for them.” God wants His children back. The children He created and formed and breathed life into them. The apple of His eyes.
He’s not happy with the offerings and dancing and worshiping in the open. Then in the close, fornication and lust and idol to money and treating people badly.
Yes He hasn’t said we shouldn’t worship or dance or pray. But He is saying the worship should be a result of being set free. The worship should be thanking Him for opening your eyes from what could have destroyed you.
The sins that would leave you broken and empty and confused and lost and destroyed. The sins that would have crushed your spirit and continue to lead you blind into destruction. Isaiah 1: 16
Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil. God sees everything man cannot see. He knows the beginning from the end. He doesn’t want us to live in brokenness and emptiness and be lost. He tells you to stay away from sin because it destroys you.
You are like a seed, you have a purpose. To germinate to grow and to bear fruits. But when you turn away from God, you become a seed without purpose. A seed which God has plans for to become a mighty tree with stalk and fruits. Becomes a seed which remains on the ground for animals to trample on and looses its purpose. A seed which is supposed to be planted in God’s soil is blown away by the wind and looses it sense of direction and purpose.
But God is saying “Come as You are. It doesnt matter what sin you did last night or this morning or what you are planning to do tomorrow. God said Come as you are my Daughter.
Even though you have walked away , you are still mine. I will take you back in , don’t worry about what you’ve done. I have plans for you, let’s start afresh. Its not too late my child.
I know your thoughts afar off. I know everything about you.” Psalm 139:2 You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.
The Lord wants to settle things with you. He will walk beside you on your journey to obey Him. You don’t have to be afraid, even if you loose friends or family because of your obedience, His reward is greater. God himself will make you new, if you come and lay it all down to Him. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, God knows everything already. But He still loves you and wants you back.
But don’t continue to turn away and disobey God. Come now and He will give you the strength. Come now and Jesus will cover you. Don’t keep walking in blindness to be destroyed without seeing what’s coming. Walk in the light, so you can see the path ahead, walk in the light so you are directed. Walk in the light so darkness does not overshadow you.
John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
Isaiah 1: 20 But if you turn away and refuse to listen, you will be devoured by the sword of your enemies. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
