How far do you want God to go to get your attention? Don’t answer too quickly. Give it some thought. What if God moved you to another land? As he did Abraham. What if he called you out of retirement? Remember Moses? How about the voice of an angel or the bowel of a fish à la Gideon and Jonah? How about a promotion like Daniel’s or a demotion like Samson’s? God does what it takes to get our attention. It is the message of the Bible. It’s the message of this audiobook: the relentless pursuit of God. God on the hunt. God in the search. Peeking under the bed for hiding kids, stirring the bushes for lost sheep. Searching, wrestling, pulling us back to him, over and over again. Kind, then stern. Tender and tough. Faithfully firm. Patiently urgent. Softly shouting. Gently thundering. God is the pilot, and we are the passengers. Though we may not understand his hand, we can always trust his heart. We can trust him to do what is right. If you need a reminder of his love, an assurance of his strength, an example of his kindness, you’re holding the right audiobook.
