He Devises the Way

I read this amazing description of God in 2 Samuel the other day. “But God does not just sweep life away; instead He devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from Him.” (14:14b) As I wade through the Scriptures, I come across this theme again and again. God, the Pursuer. God the Seeker. God the Divine Designer. God the Faithful Father.

What greater predicament could we find ourselves in than being separated from God? Yet that is the plight of all mankind. But God has never intended that it stay that way. Rather, His divine design includes seeking us, pursuing us, drawing us back.  He could just sweep away life. And sometimes I have to honestly admit that is what I would do. But not God. Instead His design is to draw us back at great initial cost, but for ultimate glory.

Jesus is the proof of this plan, the proof of God’s love, the proof that His glory will not be shared.Only God could design a plan so creative, so complex and so costly. It is a fearfully and wonderfully made design. And its end will be the glory of Jesus Christ before every tribe, tongue, and nation.  God has indeed devised the Way to bring us back. And what a beautiful paradox that Way is.
