In Loving Pursuit

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:18–19

Some think God is just out to get them. This reminds me of a story I heard about a thief who broke into a house. He was looking around in the dark with his flashlight. Suddenly he heard a voice in the darkness say, “Jesus is watching you.” The thief just about jumped out of his skin as he thought, Where did that come from?

Again he heard it. “Jesus is watching you!” The thief was absolutely terrified. He followed the sound of the voice with his flashlight and heaved a sigh of relief when he saw a parrot on a perch, who once again said, “Jesus is watching you!”

The thief laughed. Then he looked down, and at the foot of the parrot’s perch was a very large Doberman pinscher, baring his teeth.

Then the parrot looked down at the Doberman and said, “Sic ’im, Jesus.”

That is how a lot of people see God today: Jesus is against me. As Mephibosheth might have thought, they think, all that has gone wrong in my life is God’s fault. Why did God let this happen? It’s a lie of Satan that persuades people to keep their distance from God.

I know we as Christians like to refer to “the day I found the Lord.” The truth is He wasn’t lost, we were. Certainly one day we discovered a God who loved us. But God found us before we found Him. He chose us before6 we chose Him. Jesus sought us out as a shepherd looks for a lost sheep.

Thank you for sharing this brother. This seems to be one of the biggest problems nowadays, people pointing fingers at GOD and blaming Him for their problems.

Me, I ask them for proof that it is GOD's fault. Nothing. Its a shame but we need to reach out to the lost. I've gone through this many times on Talk Jesus and other places. They have the dirty demon inside them jumping to conclusions and blaming a perfect, merciful loving GOD.

The day the following verse was revealed to me my life made a drastic turn for the good. Instead of living a defeated life I began to be victorious no matter what happened. If a person will measure things by this verse there will be a big change in their life. God is not your problem the devil is!



John 10: 10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
