The Parable of the Wandering Sheep
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
Oh, the heart of our incredible Father above… I love verse 14… “In the same way YOUR father in heaven is not willing that ANY of these little ones should perish.”
God has waited patiently for us to get it… His Love… He loves you so much (John 3:16 ) that He sent His only son to pay the price that YOU could be with Him forever. He patiently waits for us to get it by blessing us with another day, extending His grace in our ugliness, chasing after you in every possible way He knows how yet here is the kicker… WE were given the greatest gift by your Father at birth and that was the free gift of free will.
Yes, He put you in the driver’s seat and said YOU can choose all along… I believe with His heart racing knowing how that will affect our lives. We get to choose HIM or not.
Light or dark…
Ugh, this grieves my heart because I hear so many people blaming God for things in their lives when they should be angry at the devil not God.
GOD IS GOOD, the devil is bad and comes to kill steal and destroy us in any way possible.
Knowing that God has released our free gift, for us to choose Him, or to walk in darkness leaves it back on us.
Yep, another note on having to take responsibility for our choices and actions stinks but it’s just reality. Sad thing is the devil knows this, so try’s to throw stuff at us that will rock our world that we will Blame God.
Devil loves that cause, then he has succeeded in his mission to rob you of hope, joy or the idea that God is real and loving. God cannot go against our will, it’s our choices that place us in circumstance and our choices that only WE can make that affect so many people.
So I just want to encourage you that God is chasing after you… He is GOOD and has GOOD for you, YOU JUST HAVE TO CHOOSE GOOD, and to remind you that there is a real battle going on for your life on a daily basis.
However, here is the crazy awesomeness of God, that even when we mess up and make a mess through our free will, God’s grace is sufficient and He says, as He is chasing after you, come to me and I will give you rest( Exodus 33:14) and I will turn ALL things for good (Jeremiah 29:11).
He Loves you and in the trials, storms, and sunny days HE stays the same, we just need to make up our minds and get in His corner.
Will you choose HIM today?
He is waiting on you!!
Bless you C
