Mungu si Athumani

"God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man, that He should feel repentance or compunction [for what He has promised]. Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?" Numbers 23:19 AMP italics and emphasis mine

Swahili idiom goes "He who gave you, denied me" implying that God will give one and deny another...but Mungu si Athumani. We project our understanding of God from our understanding of man; thus we run FROM God instead of TO God when we erred and get into trouble, for this is what we would do IF God was man.

We think God has favourites, those who DO [always] what He asks; we feel lowly and depressed for we always fail and wrong Him. But the prodigal son and the lost sheep parables (Luke 15) and John 3:16 paint a different story. God's LOVE is beyond human comprehension – we simply have to yield and receive it in spite of ourselves.
