I love reading the history of the people of Israel, because in it I see that waste of love of the Almighty before that people who on many occasions deviated, forgot God and did the wrong thing. However, God was always sought them because He loved Israel, He always looked for a way to reunite them to serve Him. Dear friend, God is not proud like us, He seeks us even without us deserving it and being He the offended one.
The people of Israel had highs and lows, but God never forgot them, since they were a people with great promises from God Himself. Jeremiah says:
12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
