Topic: Repent and be saved
Main text: Judges 10:16
8 He said, “Without question these are my people, children who would never betray me.” So he became their Savior. 9 In all their troubles, he was troubled, too. He didn’t send someone else to help them. He did it himself, in person. Out of his own love and pity he redeemed them. He rescued them and carried them along for a long, long time. Isaiah 63:8-9 (MSG)
Do you have the faintest of an idea as to how much God trusts you? How much He cares for you? How He has so much confidence in you because you are His dearly beloved?
When the people of God, the Israelites became so rebellious and sinned against God, He gave them into the hands of their enemies, and they were in such a mess until they returned to their God for help.
One thing about God is that He is ever loving and so whenever His people realize their faults and return to Him for forgiveness and help He welcomes them, the reason being that He never wishes for any of His children to go through Hell or even stay there.
34 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things. Mark 6:34 (NIV)
God has a soft spot for people who are sincere at heart. This means that no matter what happens when we repent and return to Him He accepts us.
Reading through Judges, it is realized that, when the Israelites went to God for help He turned them away saying that they should seek for help from the gods they chose to serve instead of Him…
Until the Israelites turned away from their sinful ways and made an attempt to rid their houses off the foreign gods, the Almighty God did not have their trouble at heart.
Then they cleaned their house of the foreign gods and worshiped only God. And God took Israel’s troubles to heart. Judges 10:16 (MSG)
Beloved, any time we depend on our own strength and others apart from God, He leaves us to do what we please, we all know that our fleshy desires never turns into anything good and permanent.
Anytime you sit in that bus ready to travel but without a driver and you entrust our lives to God, He takes the wheel and drives us to the desired destination.
What happens when you do not know how to drive neither do you know the route but insist on driving yourself? it’s not a miracle you will receive but severe damage leading to death!
If you are reading this post and you have replaced God with yourself or another human, I pray that you will repent and be redeemed right this moment in Jesus name.
Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for today and my life. I pray that you will forgive my sins as I forgive those who sin against me. Father I have been a total mess ever since i started following the leadings of men. Today I rid myself off anything preventing me from having a true relationship with you, and so help me God because I want to be closer to you than I really am. Thank you for listening to my prayer in Jesus name,amen.
