THERE IS STILL A BLESSING IN IT
THERE IS STILL A BLESSING IN IT
Read: ISAIAH 65: 8-10
Meditation verse:“Thus says the Lord: ‘as the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says, do not destroy it, for a blessing is in it, so will I do for My servants’ sake, that I may not destroy them all”. (Isaiah 65:8)
Have you strayed and wandered away from the loving arms of God as a result of sin? Do you feel you have gone away too far and can never be forgiven by God? Have you tried to return but the accusations of the enemy have left you in a state of self-condemnation?
Do not give up because God will never give up on you. Isaiah 42:3 says, “a bruised reed, He will not break, and a smoking flax, He will not quench…”. God does not condemn you. That voice of accusation belongs to the devil. As long as you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, His spirit lives in you, a remnant of which will never dry out. No matter how far you have wandered away, God is saying to you: ‘there is still a blessing in you’. Do not destroy it by giving up. Why not return this day to the loving arms of your Father. All you need to do is acknowledge that sin and ask for His forgiveness, repent of it and be determined not to go back there. Then move on in the knowledge that you are forgiven and loved by The Father.
“For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again. And that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth, and its stump may die in the ground, yet at the scent of water, it will bud and bring forth branches like a plant” (Job 14: 7-9).

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
