What God Does to Get Us to Return to Him

God does whatever it takes to persuade us to return to Him after we have gone astray in our sin. Listen to Moses speak of one of God’s methods,
You turn man to destruction,
And say, “Return, O children of men.”
(Psalms 90:3)
We insist on a way that is not good, a way that leads to our destruction, and God lets us go that way that we might see the results of our decisions. While we head for destruction, He pleads with us to return to Him.
Think about it. Is that not the Bible message? Is that not the message of the New Testament? God warns us that our sins will lead us to death, specifically the second death, but He does not want that for us, even sending His Son to die for us that we might escape the horrors of spiritual death.
