When we reject and stray from God….does he disown us? Does he give up on us? Does he have love in his heart for us? When we were lost in our sins…Jesus died for us…gave up his life for us….HE LOVED US. Jesus is our example……in standing…HE forgives, forgives, and forgives again. The story of the prodigal Son….so what did the Father do…….waited..and longed for his son to return f
…from his rebellion/sin. His heart was full of love.
LOOK AT GODS HEART
The Lord said to me, “Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another and is an adulteress. Love her as the Lord loves the Israelites, though they turn and love other Gods….” (Hosea 3:1)
Hosea loved God, obeyed God and was willing to suffer….to save his marriage. He was willing to wait while his wife was a caught up partying and lost in sin…….He surely had a brokenheart. Gomer loved her back to God. Gomer went thru the excruciating pain…but he never gave up…because Gods love was in him…and He knew God doesnt give up….and Gomer received his wife back and eventually she was restored to God himself. God loves us when we are gone wayward and God calls us to love like He loves us.
THE HEADING OF THE THIRD CHAPTER IN THE MESSAGE BIBLE IS CALLED: “In Time They Will Come Back” In the New International Bible the heading reads: “Hosea’s Reconciliation With His Wife”
It takes patience, perseverance…a determination to not give up…to believe this is Gods will, Gods heart. Again….God has raised up sooo many ministries as such: It only takes One to Save a Marriage!
Believe, Wait and keep your heart good and right with God. Be alert for the enemy…..HE DONT LIKE THIS TYPE OF WALK….because it truly shows God himself. Love and forgiveness, mercy and grace.
Bible says: Be imitators of God. (Eph. 5:1)
If you have never read the book of Hosea in the bible….read it….it will encourage you…..and show you…your on the right path. The path of Gods heart~
