Title: OH GOD, I MISSED IT AGAIN!
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast outJohn 6:37
Remember the story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15. This amazing story taught by Jesus tells us God’s posture towards the repentant and anyone who comes to Him. Many Christians have perished in this race, packed up and given up because of one thing: self-condemnation and the fear of not being accepted by the Father. Many have been made victims of this as a result of doctrinal foundations which pose as hindrances to returning to the Lord. This is true.
But God loves His children. In fact, He loves humanity. And He is not looking for who to lose but rather who to gain. Yes, He hates sin but the sinner is His heart’s desire. Why, so that they can become part of his family. – John 3:16, 1Tim. 2:3-4, Luke 19:1-10
God gave His word to assure you and I that when things go wrong for us and we miss it, we can come to Him as His own children, seek and have His Mercy and Grace – Heb. 4:14-16, 1John 1:9-2:2
We can rely on that promise He has given us that though we miss it, we’ve not lost out as long as we can turn to Him in repentance He will both forgive, cleanse and strengthen us.
What is Satan telling you now about your person before God? I want you to know that God isn’t thinking about losing you right now. He isn’t thinking of losing anyone but rather to gain everyone (1Tim. 2:4). Come to Him today. Call upon Him right now. He will answer. He will forgive. He will save. He is God. He isn’t willing to lose you. Don’t give up on Him yet because He hasn’t given up on you, no matter what you’ve done.
Turn around. Come back home. And Worship Him for being the kind of God that He is: forgiving, loving, liberating, loving, light etc.
