“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.
