The End of Every Road

The devotional reading for today in "This Day with the Master" by Dennis F. Kinlaw was astoundingly beautiful. Here is a portion. 

"Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; (Phi 2:9-10) 
...'When the last alternative option to Jesus has been exhausted and shown for its true bankruptcy, the name of Jesus takes on great power and allure'... 
When we choose to go our own way, God does not stop us. He lets us go until our lives collapse around us. Then in the chaos and hurt we become open again to the One from whom we have turned, and we find hope in His name. This is true for institutions, movements, countries, and cultures as well as individuals like you and me. We may reject Him for a long time, but the end of every road will be the ultimately inescapable Christ..."

I breathe Him in... deeply... and Oh,... there is nothing in this world to compare.
