I like how Israel’s just like “yeah okay, that’s fair” once they come face to face with their consequences.
I absolutely dread God telling me, “you have abandoned me, therefore I am abandoning you”. Don’t you? Isn’t that the root of all our insecurities, being abandoned?
We claim it is. But even when we have complete and total access to God, we leave him. We cannot be satisfied and it seems incredibly difficult to simply be fulfilled.
I wonder what that’s like, to unconditionally love a people whose heart is constantly fickle.
What do you abandon God for?
What draws you back to him? Are you repentant, or simply needing something from him? He’s ready either way, because his love is perfect.
