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 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 a merciful and loving God He is.

Do you feel that you have wandered too far away, as a result 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 about you. And you shouldn’t either.

Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?

Jesus says in Mathew 11:28; “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this invitation is for you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; all you need to do is invite Him in, by believing and receiving Him.

Are you ready? Here’s a prayer you can say right now:

Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of grace. I believe that Jesus died to set me free from my sins. Thank You Jesus for dying to save me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You from now onwards, in Jesus’ name, Amen

If you prayed this prayer, please email me at and let me know about it. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my eBook; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your journey with Jesus.
