No one would ever conceive of willfully turning his or her back on God! If we were asked “Would you ever turn your back on God?” The answer would be a resounding, “Never!” But, our actions show differently. There is something about humanity where we are easily led astray.
We turn our backs on God in very subtle ways. When God whispers in our ears to take certain actions and we ignore Him, we have turned our backs on Him. If we make time for everything else but Him, we have turned our backs on Him. We can read the story of Samaria and Jerusalem and think that we have never done “those types of things” but the truth is in our own ways, we have turned against God.
God is so loving He will not give up on us. Let’s search our hearts today and see if there are areas that we have turned our backs on God. Let’s purpose to fix these areas so that there is nothing hindering our relationship with God.
