Running towards what we don’t understand, and away from Him who wants to give understanding; keeps us from truly knowing who we are. – Anon
Adam and Eve ran and hid from God in the Garden and it seems as if man hasn’t stopped since. Hmm!
Believe it or not but ‘The Fall’ is still happening…. Though God has called us into relationship we are still in flight. Just think about it. We withhold information, we mask our true feelings, we twist facts, and we love to hide. Actions such as these are not demonstrations of openness or transparency but darkness. In our selfish flight to be free we only entangle ourselves more deeply. God is still in the business of giving enlightenment, discernment, wisdom, understanding, and purpose to life, and He’s willing to do it today. The great challenge for all of us is to stop running long enough to discover the truth about ourselves and God’s love for us.
“For in Him we live and move and have our being….we are His offspring.” – Acts 17:28
