No Longer Estranged

 by Rod Tucker in Thoughts

2 Samuel 14:14
But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him.
Have you ever noticed that God is devising ways for people to not stay far away from him?
He is doing it all of the time.
Think about Moses being led by God to lead the Israelites out of slavery and into a new home.
Think about David being used by God to slay a giant who was standing in the way of his people’s freedom.
Think about Jesus dying for us, and even better yet, not staying dead so that we never have to live in death.
Think about us. God is constantly making ways so that his people get to be intimate with him instead of being trapped in useless patterns and cycles.
He even uses us to help others get free.
We were once banished, and because of Jesus, we are now no longer estranged.
We are also one of the ways God has devised to help others return to Him.
What does this mean to you?
