Sometimes people tend to take God’s Love and everlasting mercy as a way for them to continue living irresponsibly. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.” 2 Corinthians 5:17. When they are confronted about their actions, their response is “God Loves me for who I am.” Yes, He does, but our love for Him should compel us to be convicted of our sins and confess them to Him. God won’t hold our sins against us; He is quick to forgive and swift to restore.
We are reached so many ways:
The peace of God in our hearts is one of the most important ways that God speaks to us daily. Through His peace, He guides us situationally, just as an umpire directs a game situation by situation. As we pray for direction from The Lord, in many cases He doesn’t answer by saying something to us.
And we pray:
Dear God, once again I would like to thank You for Your endless Love and everlasting mercy. Father, I am sorry for any time I have taken You or Your Love for granted. If there has ever been a time where I tried to use the grace You have given so freely as an excuse to live irresponsibly, I humbly confess where I have erred, and I receive Your forgiveness. Lead me, guide me LORD. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
