Read Amos 4
When I read this passage, I get the sense that God is willing to go to great lengths to win His people’s hearts and get them to turn to Him. There is a real sense of desperation. Five times He says, “Yet you have not returned to Me.”
In Amos 4, You see God disciplining His people in various ways- through starvation, drought, plague etc…why? Because He wanted His children to return to Him and be safe under His care. He knew, away from Him, they would be in danger. They’d fall into idolatry or run after financial gain, terrible snares, which would destroy them.
Has God been trying to get your attention in some way? He wants you to come to Him, He longs to gather you as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. Would you respond to Him today?
