God’s Mercy is Calling You

We serve a gracious and compassionate God. His mercy is from everlasting to everlasting (Psalm 103:8-13). He always yearns for a repentant heart (Psalm 51:17). His desire is that those who are far away or have strayed from the will of God come back to His mercy. The bible says in Isaiah 55:7 that,  “Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.”

Whether it is backsliding or total spiritual separation from divine grace, God is calling you now. The blood of Jesus has forever guaranteed our reconciliation and sanctification through the power of the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5-7). Whatever your spiritual status is today, God says “come” (Isaiah 55:1-2). He is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18).

Come boldly to the Throne of Grace. Fall on your knees before His presence. Ask Him for forgiveness and the peace of the Holy Spirit. The bible says whoever comes to Him He will by no means cast away (John 6:37). Once you sincerely and genuinely ask Him for forgiveness, He immediately does. Your transgressions are forever blotted out (Psalm 103:12; Acts 3:19). You are now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17 & 21).

There is no condemnation because you are now in right standing with God through our lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1-4). Stand firm in the liberty by which Christ has set you free and resist being entangled again with the yoke of slavery through self-condemnation (Galatians 5:1). Start to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus (2 Peter 3:18). Excel in thanksgiving, and focus on being continually led by the Spirit.

There is great rejoicing in heaven because of your decision to embrace God’s mercy (Luke 15:10). You are no longer a stranger to the commonwealth of the Kingdom and the covenants of promise, but a citizen and heir according to the promise (Ephesians 2:12-13; Ephesians 2:19). Welcome back to the Household of God!

“”So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20

      Thanks for your comment Tim. God’s mercy is without measure because He knows we’ll keep returning. He is our merciful Father. He has purposed to accept us in the Beloved and He will not relent.
      Much Regards
