labyrinthine ways

Genesis 16:13, "And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me."

The fact that our God sees everything was a thought that really bugged me, especially during the teen years! lol Usually when something like that is brought up its used to say God is always watching you to punish you when you have done this or that and the other thing. But ultimately the fact is that this is far from the real truth ... far indeed. God, however, is neither a policeman nor a Santa Claus. God does not send us to heaven or hell depending on how often we obey or disobey. God is love and only love. In God there is no hatred, desire for revenge, or pleasure in seeing us punished. God wants to forgive, heal, restore, show us endless mercy, and see us come home.

Thou God seest me really means this; God loves you so much He just can't take His eyes off of you! This is why He follows us "... down the nights and down the days, down the labyrinthine ways of our mind, and in the midst of tears and under running laughter ..." (Francis Thompson.) The reason why He will NOT give us up and will NOT lets us go. Its a Love thing ...

Just felt led to put that out there. Have a blessed day everyone ... In His presence!
