God’s Initiative

1136_whiteAll through the Bible we see Interactions with men initiated by God. God called Noah and Abraham, He blessed Issac abundantly, He gave promises to Jacob. God revealed Himself and conversed directly with Moses. God chose David as King and all the Prophets, giving them specific direction for the welfare of the people of Israel. Yeshua sought out those with responsive hearts, the disciples, the Samaritan woman, Zacchaeus, Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and many more.

We are His people, He cares for us with an everlasting love. His will and purposes can not and will not fail. He is able to save each of His children in His loving-kindness, for He is love and good all the time. We are His workmanship and He has not abandoned His creation, but has destined it and us for glory in His holy presence. Your story is not written or finished as far as we can tell, but it is a story of loves redeeming work, of unmerited favor, of God’s faithfulness, of His supernatural intervention to save us and triumph over His enemies. For a child of God his life story is one of calling, blessing, redemption, resurrection and more. In all that it is a story of God intervening to snatch you from certain destruction and raise you to glory together with and in Yeshua, Lord and King.

For our part, we say yes and give our heart, mind, and soul to Him, as best we can. The rest is a story of love bearing fruit. “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!  ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?’ ‘Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?’ For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” (Rom.11: 33-36).
