Experience God’s Peace in Anxious Times by Bayless Conley


The Way of Escape: The Power of the Tongue by Mac Hammond


He Does Not Condemn by Al Johnson


Today's featured devotional...
benchreading manGod has always wanted to be close to us. It was mankind who chose to separate from Him, through disobedience in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3). But from that moment, God worked on a plan to restore us to perfect relationship with Him! He spent the rest of the Old Testament bringing that plan to pass.

His amazing plan was to give the most precious thing He had – His only begotten Son – to be our sin substitute.

So as we read the Bible we see that, in spite of our choice to sin, the heart of our Father never stopped crying out for His sons and daughters.

God grieved over mankind for 4000 years. From the moment Adam and Eve sinned, He began looking forward to the day when He could redeem us and that lost fellowship and communion could be restored – through the cross.

Isaiah 48:16-18 says,

“Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord God and His Spirit have sent Me.” Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go. Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea."

God cried out to His people to follow Him and obey Him, because He wanted so much to bless them! He never stopped taking care of mankind, even when they didn’t listen to Him.

Isaiah 65:2 says,

"I have stretched out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, according to their own thoughts…"

He was reaching out to them, but they couldn’t respond because of their sinful nature. Light has no fellowship with darkness (2 Cor. 6:14). Their spiritual condition denied them access to fellowship with Almighty God. He still loved them, still wanted to help them and guide them and be their all in all.

But He couldn’t reach them. For the most part, they didn’t understand or even know He was there. It was heartbreaking.
