“When will you stop running? When will you stop panting after other gods? But you say, ‘Save your breath. I’m in love with these foreign gods and I can’t stop loving them now!” Jeremiah 2:25
Israel when will you stop running? Israel was destroyed as a nation in AD 70, and then was totally and completely destroyed in AD 135, the people were then scattered all over the world. Then 2000 years later, they were brought back to form a nation in the same geographical area as in Bible times. Nothing like that has ever been done in the history of the world. Only God could have been involved with what has happened to Israel. The problem is that Israel is still running. They have seen God work all kinds of miracles. Israel is God’s chosen people, but they are still running. I am amazed how loving and patient God is.
“I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you.” (Psalm 139:7-12) God wants us to return to Him. When will you stop running?
