God Has Been Waiting On You

How does it feel when someone is waiting on you? If you are running late, you probably feel guilty about it. If it is somewhere that you donít want to go, you may run late on purpose. But, what if God was the one waiting on you?

Itís true that God waits for us all of our lives. What is He waiting for? He is looking for His children to come back home. And, indeed, we are His children. He knew us when we were still in the womb and our own parents didnít know who we were.

The reason God is waiting goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve had everything that their Lord had to offer and they turned their backs for one thing that they didnít have (and really didnít need). And today, we are still following in those ancient footsteps.

After Eden, the world was plunged into sin. Every person born was born into an unholy world. There was no way to bridge the chasm. God spoke directly to several people to accomplish His goals. But, we were still separated and it pained our Father.

But, God had a plan. He sent His only son, Jesus, into the world to be our bridge over that chasm of sin. Now, think about the gravity of His decision. Children are a part of us from the beginning. They are our life. Youíd probably rather lose a limb or life itself than let your children die.

That is the length and depth and height of Godís love for us. Even His child was not spared to bring us back into relationship with Him. Jesus was born into this sinful world like the rest of us. He ate, drank, slept and had friends.

In His adult life, the three-year ministry began. Jesus knew hunger, hatred, love, pain and every other emotion we feel every day. Still, He knew that His reward would be great in heaven when He fulfilled the Fatherís plan.

The very ground opened up when Jesus died. For the first time, those who hated Jesus realized who He truly was. Why does it take the ground shaking beneath some of our feet to get us to recognize God?

God stands ready to accept us back into His loving arms. The sacrifice was made once for all and the reward Jesus received as a child of the King awaits us too. Some church fans display a picture of the Savior standing at a closed door knocking. The door is the one that opens to your heart.

Some of our hearts are so hardened that nothing can get in. On the inside, there is hurt and anger barring the door. At that point, the only one who can breach the heart is Jesus.

Jesus is not a myth used to separate you from your money and possessions by television preachers. The Savior is real and if you donít have true peace of mind in your life, then He is still standing at the door waiting on you to open it.

But, God is patient. That is how love works. When your kids go astray, you donít cut them off like a weed in the garden. You wait tearfully, prayerfully and hopefully for them to come back to you.

Donít be misinformed. God is tearful when we slap His helping hand away. It gets slapped away when you brick up your heart. It is slapped away when you refuse to hear the Word of God. It gets slapped whenever you give someone else the glory that belongs to Him.

God wants to shelter you in His arms. Accepting Him now means living in safety and love on this side of heaven. But He canít do so unless you let Him in. And so, He waits for your answer until the time that you take your last breath.

God sent Jesus as a ransom to buy your freedom. Wonít you stop living in bondage to the world and accept that you can be free in Christ?

Additional Scriptures:

ďLook! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.Ē

Revelation 3:20

Seek the Lord while you can find him.
††††††Call on him now while he is near.
†Let the wicked change their ways
††††††and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
†Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.
††††††Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.

Isaiah 55: 6-7
