2 Samuel 14:14 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

2 Samuel 14:14

All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God does not just sweep life away; instead, He devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from Him.


Jesus Christ is the only One who can bridge the gap of sin that separates us from the Father! He paid our price. It is finished. It’s not a question; it’s a fact. So why is it phrased “He devises ways”? We know there is only One way, and that is through Jesus Christ.


What I believe it’s saying here is that God will and can use multiple ways to draw us back to Himself and to Christ! That He isn’t limited to just using one way to draw you to His Son but rather that He is constantly coming up with new ways to lead you to Christ! Think about it like this. We are all created uniquely and intimately by God. So, He knows that we are all different and that we respond to things differently. So, what does He do? He devises ways to speak to our hearts and leads us back to Himself!


What a God we serve! If giving us His Son wasn’t enough, He took it a step further and is still pursuing us all the time! I'm often blown away by the goodness of our God! The depths of His love, the magnitude of His mercy, the brilliant splendor of His grace! Be encouraged. God knows we are all different and is continuing to use different seasons, people, situations, and experiences to lead us to the only One who can redeem and reconcile us to the Father, Jesus Christ our King! The narrow gate is the only way to enter and live, and that narrow gate is Christ!


Matthew 7:13 - “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate, and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”


God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise now and forever to God Almighty, Jesus Christ our King, and the Holy Spirit!
