If you were heading down a road that suddenly led you into a bad part of town, you might think about turning around because of the danger that you were about to be confronted with. Yesterday I was driving and a road was blocked off by police. I could have kept pushing forward, but I'm guessing that wouldn't have boded well for my future. See, there are times in life when we realized that we're not heading in the right direction, and it's in those moments that we need to have the wisdom to turn around. The introductory chapters to Jeremiah reveal God's heart for the Israelites and how they whored themselves to other gods and other nations. From His perspective, the most rational thing they could do would be to humble themselves and return to Him. Why? So He could shame them and make them feel foolish? Hardly! He wanted to redeem them and to bring them back into a relationship with Him. God is in the business of redeeming people. You've never gone too far or messed up too many times. He still wants you back. That doesn't mean the consequences of your sins will magically disappear, but it does mean that your loving heavenly Father wants to walk with you through the healing process. Is it time for a u-turn?
