Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
God has gone to great lengths to help you keep your past in your past and your mistakes out of your way. Are you allowing Him to give you the fresh start you need today or are you beating yourself up over the mistakes you have made? I would encourage you if you are still making those mistakes to STOP IT! Seriously, why live under the bondage of Satan when you can live free with a new lease on life. Victory is yours for the asking even if you have an area you just feel as though you have failed over and over in, don’t give up now victory is right in front of you. God’s grace is sufficient for you, not just your neighbor or your friends, not just the thief on the cross, it is sufficient for you. Sometimes the biggest struggle we have in gaining victory in our lives is allowing the victory Jesus had on the cross to be enough. We need to stop the self talk of I will never change or be able to overcome this and realize that Jesus overcame it for you and all you have to do is ask Him to help you and then claim that victory one day at a time. God will give you the strength for today and if you will just take one day at a time, don’t think about tomorrow, you will find that victory is truly yours!
If you know someone wallowing in the pit of I can’t forgive myself encourage them to climb out and get started on life again. Don’t live a defeated life God paid an incredibly high price by giving his son for you to live a victorious life. Why would you settle for anything else?
Reach out today to God and ask Him to show you any areas you may need His forgiveness in and then ask Him to help you move on and live the life He created you to live. Jesus gave His life for your sins, how frustrating it must be for Him to watch people who have been forgiven live in the guilt of something His death paid the price for so they don’t have to live that way. God has called you to a victorious life in Him so get started today; don’t allow Satan to rob you of that!
