Today, I was reminded: while God isn’t pleased when we’re inclined to follow our own way—thinking we can provide for ourselves better than He can—if we apologize, His anger turns to comfort and we are forgiven.
That deliverance from our wrongs and restoration in our relationship to God (which the Bible calls, “Salvation”)? It’s completely sufficient and instantly effective. Don’t believe me? Take a look at Isaiah 12:1–6 and Isaiah 6:3–6.
So what are you waiting for? Confess your wrongdoing, open your heart to God, and let 2019 be the year you let the Holy One be your strength and your salvation!
