“And when he was in affliction, he besought the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers.” (Chronicles 33:12)
Manasseh was one of the proudest kings in the Bible. A man anointed to lead God’s people that ended up practising soothsaying, necromancy and witchcraft. He shed so much innocent blood. He built graven images and evil alters in the temple of the Lord. The scripture says Manasseh did abominable things even more wickedly than all the Amorites and the heathen nations. Judgement came upon Jerusalem and Manasseh.
Manasseh was taken captive to Babylon. The amazing thing here is when Manasseh humbled himself, the Lord had mercy on him and He delivered and restored Manasseh back to his throne in Judah.
It is very instructive to note at this juncture that no matter what you may have done in time past, God is still ever ready to forgive you your sins and wash you clean. What you only need to do is to let go of your pride and allow God’s mercy to reach your state of humility. He is waiting for you even right now!
God is ever ready to forgive a humble heart!
A broken a contrite heart God will not despise!
