Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

Is you heart wounded?

Are you afraid that you have done something so bad that you can not be forgiven from?

Have you changed your lifestyle due to a major event in your life?

Do you think that forgiveness is for other people and not you?

Do you feel as if you don't deserve to be forgiven?

Do you feel guilty for what you have done wrong?

What if I told you that there is forgiveness for those who ask.

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." I John 1:9

No one deserves forgiveness. If we deserved forgiveness then it would not be called forgiveness. No matter what you have done, you can rest assured that you can be forgiven. There is nothing that can disqualify you from being forgiven, except the "unpardonable sin" Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. If you have to ask yourself whether or not you have, the answer is no you have not, this is one of those that you would know if you had.

You must first recognize that you are in sin before you can be forgiven.

There is no sin that is too bad that God can not deal with. You can find many people in the bible that done all sorts of bad things, whom God loved and was forgiven by Him. Here are just a few...

David- a man after God's own heart, killed a man in order to have his wife. He wrote that God "hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities...As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us." Psalm 103:10,12 This means that he has forgotten them and remembers them no more, when we ask forgiveness. This does not mean ask for forgiveness and then go right back and do it again on purpose.

Paul- mighty servant of God- hunted down Christians and dragged them in for trial and execution. After his meeting and conversion with God wrote, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." I Timothy 1:15

God can change you if you only ask Him to come and dwell in you. Don't be like the Saducees of Jesus day and reject Him, thinking that you are too good for forgiveness.

Your sin is not bigger than God's faithfulness!

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

"Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believed." Mark 9:23

In order for our sins to be forgiven we must first ask, then turn away from what we know is wrong.
