the heart for healing


devotional post # 2143

Hosea 14:4-7

Hos 14:4 I will heal their defection; I will love them freely, because my anger has turned from them.
Hos 14:5 I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like the lily; he will take root like the trees of Lebanon;
Hos 14:6 his shoots will spread out; his beauty will be like the olive tree, and his fragrance like Lebanon.
Hos 14:7 They will turn and dwell beneath my shadow; they will flourish like the grain; they will blossom like the vine; their fame will be like the wine of Lebanon.

the heart for healing

God’s heart was for the healing and restoration of his people. That was what he wanted. He wanted them to turn, and he promised to restore them. He still has the same heart. Hew waits for those who have left him to return, no matter what generation it is.

LORD, show us how to turn to you utterly.
