Going through the book of Hosea, and realizing this is our world today. See HOW great a love the Father has bestowed upon us. After we have turned aside, played the whore, determined to go after filth. After we have turned aside from our God, sacrificing our very lives to other gods. After we have stubbornly wasted all. After all this, He says, "I will heal their apostasy; I will love them freely, for My anger has turned from them. I will be like the dew to Israel..." (Hos. 14:4) "O Ephraim, what have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like an evergreen cypress; from Me comes your fruit. Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them; for the ways of the Lord are right, and the upright walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them." (Hosea 14:8,9)

"Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that He may heal us; He has struck us down, and He will bind is up. Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; His going out is sure as the dawn; He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth." (Hosea 6:1,3)
