About Pursued by Love Series

Love is a force that is not stoppable or predictable. Love is unquenchable. The only thing you can do to Love is…miss it.

Devotional

Hosea 2:2, 3 NASB
“And let her put away her harlotry… Or I will strip her naked and expose her as on the day when she was born. I will also make her like a wilderness, make her like desert land and slay her with thirst.”

Israel had changed the Sovereign God into her definition of Him, and put Him under her dominion. He had been demoted to a position second to Baal, even “considering Yahweh a Super-Baal. Canaanizing or Baalizing Yahweh worship so that the people completely forsook Yahweh” (Ryrie Bible notes).

But God is unchangeable and immovable. We cannot press Him into the manageable. And that is always the human delusion: “I can recreate God into my image of Him. I will make Him tolerant of what I want. I will give Him the position I choose.”

Then comes the roar: God will prove He is…GOD!
