As rotten as we are, God loves us. We disappoint Him every day. Yet despite our iniquities, He continues to profess His love for us. We are holy because we are redeemed. He loves us passionately and longs for a relationship with us. He pursues and we turn and run, rather than be lavished by Him. What is wrong with us? Our loving God only wants us to love Him back, honor Him, and praise Him. Despite His love, we continue to chase after and give our hearts to other gods. He created everything including those other gods. Why would we worship anything but the original. Many believe that they are self made and that God didn't have anything to do with it. They have fooled themselves into believing that they don't need God or that He doesn't exist. These people are foolish! It's time that we connect with the Holy Spirit and listen to His counsel on these matters. Engage with Him to help counter all excuses made for self worship.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? "I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds." Jeremiah 17:9-10
