Word of the Day: March 16, 2022 A call to come home, run to Him, it is not too late!
Where would we all be without God's mercy and forgiveness? Where would we be in our walk with God, if there was not forgiveness and mercy still waiting for us every morning? NO WHERE would be! Do you believe God's loves you enough to forgive you even 70x 7 for the same offense and more if needed?
This post is not a license to go out and willfully and deliberately sin against God in a prideful way, "oh God will forgive me." It is for those who love God, fallen, and the enemy is doing all he can to keep them down and away from God.
IT IS TRUE... IT IS TRUE....God's mercies are new every morning. It doesn't say some mornings, it says every morning. No matter if you stumble 1000 times, get up and run to the throne of Grace where you can find mercy in your time of need.
It's not that we should sin or even desire to sin if we belong to Jesus and washed in His blood, but don't let the devil tell you when you do sin and fall short, that God will not forgive you, deliver you, and wash you again in that blood.
Peter asked Jesus, how many times should I forgive my brother if he offends me up to 7 times? Jesus said "not 7 times but 7 x 70. That is 490s a day. That is sure a lot of forgiveness, but 7 x 70 is just God's perfect numbers.
If we are commanded to forgive each other for continued offenses, how much more will God for give us for ours. This does not give us a license to sin, but it show us that God is merciful when we do fall short and sin.
His heart is always to forgive us, deliver us, and restore us. Look at the example of the Prodigal son. Again, this is not a license to go out and sin, "and yeah, God will forgive me so I can keep wanting to do it."
No this post is for all who have perhaps fallen and stumbled and filled with shame, guilt and condemnation that they can't return to the Lord. What they did was so bad and ugly, God won't forgive them.
This is for those who hear the enemy call the a hypocrite that they don't really love God. You will never be good enough, holy enough, to please God, look at the failure you are. You say you love God, but you are a liar, look at what you did?
To all of you that may feel that way this morning. Hear the Word of the Lord. His mercies are new every single morning. You can turn around and run to Him, He is waiting for you to forgive you, heal you and restore you and remove every ounce of shame and guilt from you. So run to Him, while you still have time!
When Moses asked God to show him, His Glory. God would not let him see his face, but only his back. Do you know what words came out of the Lord's glory?
"Then the Lord passed by in front of him, and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth (faithfulness); 7 keeping mercy and lovingkindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin... Exodus 34:6-7
What won't God forgive us for? What sin is to big to wash away? What can wash our sins away? NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS! OH PRECIOUS IS THAT FLOW THAT MAKES ME WHITE AS SNOW, NO OTHER FOUNT I KNOW.... NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS. Do you think you have failed God so much, that He won't forgive you and restore you? Hear God's word to you today, or precious one of the Lord.
1 John 1: 8-9 …8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
