Chapter-a-Day Hosea 5

Then I’ll go back to where I came from until they come to their senses. When they finally hit rock bottom, maybe they’ll come looking for me. Hosea 5:15 (TM)

I had a teacher once who said, "Be very concerned if and when you realize that God is silent in your life." I think people often see God as the punishing parent who smothers us with judgment, always spiritually sending them to their room or withholding their allowance if they sin. I think God is more like the way He describes Himself through Hosea. He draws off and lets us wallow in our own stupidity and stupidity’s natural consequences until we come to our senses and seek Him out.
