I was tagged by Michelle to name my favorite book of the Bible and why? so although this was a hard one for me to nail down, I picked Hosea. There is circumstances in life that lead me to other books to encourage me for different reasons…but I think I end up here most often.
Hosea- this books is a perfect illustration of our human defiance in being faithful to God. Also a perfect illustration of HIS mercy and faithfulness to do what ever needs to be done to turn us back to HIM. HE does not let go. Another thing is the way God led Hosea to marry an unfaithful woman, and to name his children things that would a painful reminder to him and those around him. Wonder why? I have pondered on that several times…but the answer I come to is so Hosea could see through God’s eyes. That is most likely the reason we go through so much suffering, although we complain and stomp our feet..I think the lesson is to ask God to see it through HIS eyes…Just my thoughts. While reading through Hosea, look specifically for God’s heart and actions…it really shines a light on HIM and put there for us.
Now I am tagging
