He wants us

There is nothing big or small that God can’t do. He sent Jesus to come and erase the sin of this world, so that he might be able to engage in a full on relationship with us. We don’t live a life with a God who plays puppet master, commanding us what to do. We live a life where our God is mindful of us, who wants us to be sealed for the day of redemption. He has this crazy desire to get to know the one that he himself created. What I mean by that is he desires for us to want him.

Kind of weird to say that, huh? God wants us to want him, but it’s completely true. He made us, knit our innermost being (Psalm 139) and because of the sin that has entangled the earth, we were born with a barrier between us and God. But that’s why Jesus was sent down from Heaven, to purge the crimson stain upon our robes, to break the chains of sin on all of our lives so that we may come face to face with our Creator.

To truly discover everything that this life is about is a complete adventure. It’s worth to jump off the edge with Christ, it’s worth to take the risk of experiencing the love of the Unseen. No greater risk can we take but the one of loving our Maker. Why is it risky? It’s a risk because once we choose to follow him, we have to change everything that we know and begin to see life through his eyes. I say we “have” to because when you begin to believe in his love for you, your soul will want nothing else. It will taste the beauty of the supernatural and you’ll fall deeply in love with an amazing God.

So really, you aren’t risking anything because he won’t leave you in the dark. Remember that he made you for himself…. ┬áThe book of Joshua reads in Chapter 1, verse 5, “…As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
