I read these verses this morning in my devotions. They come from Deuteronomy 32:18-19. NLT
“You neglected the Rock who had fathered you;
you forgot the God who had given you birth.
The Lord saw this and drew back,
provoked to anger by his own sons and daughters.”
I was struck by them because I sometimes feel that God draws back from me when I neglect Him or struggle with sin. You too? Be assured God never leaves you or abandons you. But sometimes He may draw back a bit. Part of His amazing grace is the freedom He gives us to either be close to Him or distant. To walk with Him or to go our own way. Today let’s choose to walk with Him. To be close. Pray with me. Father, today I wish to walk with You, to be close to You. Draw close to me. I love you, my Rock and my Redeemer. Amen.
See you at the Lighthouse,
