Have you ever realized that God is most closest to you when you really are in need?
The times when you are aware of your failure, inadequacy, and lack? That he covers you when you repent of your sin?
I've been becoming more aware of this fact lately.
Even throughout the Old Testament , he shows his devotion through his people.
Many times the children of Israel turned to the Baals and Ashroths, so God delivered them into the hands of their enemies.
When they cried out to Him for deliverance from the oppression, He would deliver them.
Over and over...God shows love!
How often do you get into sin , you repent, and God forgives you?
He has done this for me many times. What is more, he shows us that there is no way... apart from HIM stepping in...can we be purified each day by him.
Think of sin as a person. No matter what you do, you cannot get away from it. No praying, fasting, or ANYTHING you do..apart from calling on him, He stands in-between you and Sin. Each time you repent.. to truly turn away from Sin and ask to be freed, he steps in.
That is love! Never give up my friend!
