“God Never Surrenders” ( Jeremiah 32: 33, NIV ) by Carley Evans

God bemoans Israel, who are the people of God, saying: “They turn their backs to me and not their faces; though I teach them again and again, they do not listen or respond to discipline.”

I’ve heard parents bemoan their child, “We’ve tried everything, but he ‘turns his back to [us] and not [his] face.'” “We teach [him] again and again, [but he] does not listen or respond to discipline.'”

I’ve heard that a few parents eventually disown or surrender to the child, usually after many many years of frustrating efforts.

But, I know that nothing “will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:39) God never gives up on us.

    Love this! “God never gives up on us.” Amen! Parenthood helps us understand God’s love even more…and if we “being evil” love our children how much more our Heavenly Father loves us! He proved His love on the Cross and He proves it with His perfect presence each and every day as He has promised to never leave us nor foresake us…ever. Awesome God! 🙂
