Jeremiah 24:7 – “I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.”
I think that most everyone has seen the movie with the toys that come to life in the little boy’s bedroom. The little guy writes his name on his toys. This makes the toys feel special and loved. They feel that being lost or forgotten is the worst punishment a toy could endure. Just like in another children’s movie the phrase is made: “Ohana means family. And family means no one gets lost or forgotten.”
God has created a very special “Ohana”. He has written His name on our hearts. He has given us a heart to love and seek after Him.
We have a lot of people wandering around out there in the world that feel lost and forgotten. The devil has convinced them that they are of no use or value to anyone, especially God. Even followers of Christ can get lured into this false idea. They might find themselves in a valley that seems to have no way out and they feel all alone. Friend, remember, you never walk anywhere alone when you have chosen Jesus as your Savior. Some times He is just waiting for you to come to Him. Maybe you have run off and left Him. Turn around and run back.
Remember in that movie I was talking about? The toys got lost and they set out on a journey to get back to their owner and their family. Today, if you find yourself floundering around in the world and you feel like a fish out of water, go back. Find your “Ohana” and seek shelter with your Owner, the Owner of your heart and soul. Let Him comfort and keep you.
