In HIS Presence


Read: ROMANS 8:28-39
Meditation verse:
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28).

God is the God of a second chance. Romans 11:29 tells us that the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. This means that He will not change his mind concerning what He has called you to do. It is irrevocable whether you choose to do it or not.

If you have strayed away from God’s plan, He is able to bring you back on course. Because His calling is irrevocable, He always has a redemptive plan for us. When the first man fell in the garden of Eden, God did not have to scratch His head and worry over what to do next. He already had a redemptive plan in place which he unfolded in the fullness of time in the person of our saviour Jesus Christ.

There is no pondering over a ‘what next’ with God. He is a God of a second chance, so He already has a back-up plan in place for you as you journey through the life that He has called you to. The bible says He pities those who fear Him as a father pities his children, for He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust (Ps 103:13-14). What merciful and loving God, He is.

Do you feel that you have wandered too far away, because of the wrong decisions and choices you made in the past? Why not return to him today. He already has a redemptive plan in place for you. His call upon your life is irrevocable. He won’t change His mind over you. And you shouldn’t either.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
