“Every Day Deserves A Chance” by Max Lucado

 

“Brighten your day by envisioning God running toward you.

When His patriarchs trusted, God blessed. When Peter preached or Paul wrote or Thomas believed, God smiled. But He never ran.

That verb was reserved for the story of the prodigal son. “But when He was still a great way off, His father saw Him and had compassion, and ran and fell on His neck and kissed Him.” – Luke 15:20 nkjv

God runs when He sees the son coming home from the pig trough. When the addict steps out of the alley. When the teen walks away from the party. When the ladder-climbing executive pushes back from the desk, the spiritist turns from idols, the materialist from stuff, the atheist from disbelief, and the elitist from self promotion…

When prodigals trudge up the path, God can’t sit still. Heaven’s throne room echoes with the sound of slapping sandals and pounding feet, and angels watch in silence as God embraces His child.

You turn toward God, and He runs toward you.”
