"Behold, the Lord’s hand is not so short that it cannot save, Nor His ear so impaired that it cannot hear."--Isaiah 59:1 (AMP)
Yet, there is good news for us today! God sent His Son to redeem--not to condemn.
John 3:17: "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
No matter the level of regret, hopelessness, or shame we may be embattled with--we can receive liberty and freedom when we humbly turn to God the Father in brokenness and repentance. Isaiah 59:1 tells us that the Lord's hand is not too short that it cannot snatch us out of the depths of despair. Nor is he deaf that he cannot hear the cries of distress. He is poised to rescue, restore, and renew hope.
Father in the name of Jesus, I cry out to you in repentance. I confess that I __________________________. I'm sorry. I pray for your forgiveness. I thank you for Christ's redemptive work on the cross; every sin and every transgression is washed and covered with the blood of Jesus. I thank you that in you, there is no condemnation (Romans 8:1). I pray for your supernatural grace and strength to stop condemning myself. I apply your word to my life. I thank you for freedom. I thank you that you are uprooting regret, shame, hopeless, and despair from my heart. I thank you that you are replacing them with your love, peace, joy, and acceptance. I receive them now, in Jesus' name. Amen.
