scriptures: Hosea 1, 2, 3, 6, 11. Exodus 20, Jeremiah 3:8, Matthew 9:12-13, Exodus 32, Exodus 34, Isaiah 57:15
Hosea was a prophet. He spoke for God. But before he could speak for God, first he had to understand God.
Have you ever felt so far from God… you have just made your own way and the entire time you knew deep down that it was wrong but something in you just wouldn’t turn back… and yet in the most gracious, amazing way you get these subtle reminders that God hasn’t given up on you?
and now, when you look back on what happened you see so clearly… clear as day that someone was paying your bills… someone was carrying you… someone had their hand on you even when you were running from Him?
you don’t even recognize where the grace is coming from, yet you know in your heart that someone, somewhere is taking care of you even as you endeavor down this broken road?
