Today Reminder - 25 July 2012 (Second Chances)

My prayer for you for today is that God will cleanse you from all wickedness and forgive your sins, in Jesus name.

1 John 1:9-10
But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that His word has no place in our hearts.

Second chances - This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in Him at all (Verse 5). I just love this: God is light, and there is no darkness in Him at all. Our God is a God of second chances. When Jesus were confronted by the priests about the fact that He visits all the sinners and that He spends time with them, His answer was: "Healthy people don't need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners." (Mark 2) God is all light and there is no bad side to Him, He is love and more than we can ever imagine. You see the enemy will try and hurt you by accusing you of the things you did wrong or are doing wrong and he will try and make you negative about life. Where God is all about forgiving and standing up and trying again, the enemy is all about destroying and accusing. God will forgive a repenting heart and more than that God will use your repenting heart for His purpose. 

My dear friends, whatever it is, God will forgive it if you repent with a humble dependent heart. This life is not about giving up and sitting down, this life is about standing up and fighting back. It is about second chances and determination, making the best of what you have and accepting forgiveness and turning bad into good. Life is about taking on the impossible and seeing the victory long before you reach the end. 

Let us take our second chances and turn them into victory marches as we take on each new day will renewed determination. I am more than meets the eye, because in me dwells a living God. I am unstoppable and unbreakable as I hold on to Him, He is my solid ground.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
