You are right, O GOD, and you set things right. I can’t argue with that. But I do have some questions… (Jer 12:1)
If you’ve been in any relationship for longer than 10 minutes, then you’ll have already begun to realise that there’s a lot about the other person that you never knew.
Our relationship with GOD is no different. Although He seems to know all about us, what rings our bell and what makes us tick, we, on the other hand, can only judge Him based on what we read him say about situations in the Bible.
In the beginning, I was truly obnoxious. After reading the Bible for the first time, my heart had tons of questions about things I just didn’t like.
The thing is, I struggled with these for a time, and then I heard him say: “If this relationship is going to work, then I would rather have your honesty than your hard-hearted friendship!”
So I told him. I sat and argued almost every point I could think of...
Have we resolved everything? No – not everything! Relationships don’t work that way, some issues need time (and experience) to resolve, and so far and on every point, I’ve found that it’s been ‘my’ heart that needed to soften before I could grasp the truth and wisdom needed to understand what it means to live – and be really free.
One thing else – the more ‘my heart’ softens, the more I love and trust Him.
