"God will take nine steps toward us, but He will not
take the tenth. He will incline us to repent, but He cannot do our repenting for
us" (A. W. Tozer, 1897–1963).
When we find ourselves away from God, we look around and
realize God has not moved, but we are the ones who have wandered from His
presence. Just as quickly, He meets us when we return even the slightest bit
toward Him. Jesus, in Luke 15:20, shares the picture of His Father in the story
of the prodigal's return: “When he was yet a great way off, his father saw him,
and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.”
Turn to God, for He is running to you.
God, thank You for meeting us more than halfway. Amen.
In GOD We Trust!
