The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him.
You Are Forgiven
Are you haunted by past sins? Perhaps Satan, the accuser, keeps reminding you of mistakes you’ve made in your life. If so, rebuke him right now with the truth that you, as a believer in Jesus Christ, have been forgiven.
Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy. Instead, turn to the Word of God and read about Paul, who calls himself the chief of sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). In the book of Acts, a man named Saul was persecuting the church. He gave his consent to the martyrdom of Stephen and travelled around hunting believers of the Way and punishing them. After Saul met Jesus, however, he gave his life completely over to the Lord and became Paul, the apostle who wrote much of the New Testament.
Paul could have wallowed in despair over his past sins, but he didn’t-he knew the only way to be effective in ministry was to accept God’s Word as truth and stand on His promise.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will…turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin.” You are forgiven.
Put the past behind you and walk in that truth today.
1 John 1:9
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
