What is holding you back from digging deeper into your faith? Is it sin you are holding onto? An addiction that just won’t let go? Unforgiveness towards someone who has hurt you?
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
Today we need to take this verse to heart. To dig deeper you must first repent. Once we repent we see a word that cannot be ignored, THEN. Then we must turn to God. If we repent and continue in our sinful ways, how effective is the words we spoke? We need to repent and then turn to God. Then and only then will your sins be wiped out and times of refreshing will come from the Lord.
As you spend time with God today, take the time to truly repent of all, and THEN turn to God to fill the void left behind with his love and times of refreshing. Do not leave without being filled. For if you do the enemy can spot that a mile away and will do everything in his power to fill it with sin. Trust that God will wipeout your sin and fill the void with something so much better. Let him do it. Stand firm and don’t leave his presence until you feel his love overflowing in your heart. One of the awesome things about God is that you don’t need to be at Church to experience Him.
Jesus, we ask for forgiveness and ask that you cleanse us of our sins, replacing the space with your love and mission. We want to meet with you today and everyday. Let those around us see us as different because of you. The people around us need you Jesus and you love them, because you love them we love them and know that they are important, show us how to do something to reach them. Amen
