The Prophet Isaiah expresses the heart of God about rebellion in these words. “I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me. Even the animals—the donkey and the ox—know their owner and appreciate his care for them, but not my people… They have cut themselves off from my help.” (Isaiah 1:2–4)
The purpose of this paperback book is to give an understanding about how God feels when his children rebel, and also to show how he disciplines us in love for our good. It is an expansion of the earlier published e-book of the same name.

Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is a people robbed and plunderedÃ¢â‚¬â€trapped in holes and hidden in prisons; they have become a prey with no one to rescue, a spoil with none to say Ã¢â‚¬ËœRestore.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Isaiah 42:22. Judith Vander Wege, the author of Rescued by GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mercy, (also of The Runaway: A parable about how God feels about rebellion, and of Songs & Poems From a Yielded Heart), felt Ã¢â‚¬Å“robbed and
plundered and trapped in holesÃ¢â‚¬Â in the years around 1981. She experienced a divorce that Ã¢â‚¬Ëœfelt like a tragic train wreck.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ She felt abandoned by God; her heartache led to wrong decisions which further messed up her life. In Rescued by GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mercy,Ã¢â‚¬Â she attempts to show how God showed mercy to her in rescuing her from the trap Satan had set for her. Then God, through giving her hunger for scripture, brought her into an intimate relationship with himself. Now, Judith has a passion to help other hurting people get into an intimate relationship with God, to experience his love and healing and joy. This heart-filled narrative explains how each of us can move into a more intimate relationship with God. It uses the Old Testament book of Isaiah to explain how God longs to restore us to fellowship with himself and give us spiritual and emotional health.
