When we mess up…make mistakes…the devil can lead us to believe that it’s over for us…we have messed up so badly that we are done…finished.
But, as Lee Corso says on ESPN’s Gameday show during college football season; “Not so fast my friend!”
God will forgive us if we ask. Psalms 86:5 says, “O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.”
Think about the words, “Lord you are so ready to forgive.” At times you may hear someone say, “I am SOOO ready for this to be over,” meaning that person is ready to go…they have been ready for a while. The Psalmist said God is SOOO ready to forgive us….
Maybe you did something and you are yet to confess it. You are afraid God won’t forgive you. But God is saying to us…”I’m past ready to forgive you…I’ve been ready…I just need you to ask.”
The Lord is SOOO ready to forgive us. You don’t have to continue to live with the burden of a mistake. So get the weight off of you today. The Lord has been ready to forgive. Doesn’t matter what it is…confess it to God and experience forgiveness.
