Mercies New Every Morning

No matter what you’ve done, no matter how bad you’ve blown it, God stands ready to accept and forgive you.

Do you believe it when someone tells you that there is no sin too big for God’s mercy and grace?

You see, God’s purpose in you is not limited by your past (2 Peter 1:9). Consider famous people used of God in the Bible like Moses, Jacob, Jonah and Paul.  They all made mistakes that could have prevented them from being used by God.   Like them, we have plenty of our own issues.  We live a life of filth, greed and lies. Just like how AJ searched high and low for everything that could please him, make him happy, and fulfill his earthly desires; at the end of the day, was still empty and lonely.

But praise the ever merciful God who never gave up on us. Like the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32), The Father patiently waited for our return and is patiently waiting for others to return too! And upon our return, while we were still far off, He ran to us and celebrated our return home! (Luke 15:20)

You may still be living in your past and the devil is trying to feed you with thoughts like “your sins are unforgiveable,” and “God will never ever take you back!”  That’s the lie that AJ lived in for years, but the greatest news here is that Jesus took him back!  Jesus wants and will do the same for you no matter what you’ve done, He waits and longs for you to come back home.
