Sinning against God

“Because I have sinned against Him, I will bear the Lord’s wrath, until He pleads my case and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light and I will see His righteousness.” 

Who is a God like You, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.

You will again have compassion on us and will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.” Micah 7:9,18-19

There will be times that we will sin and because of this will experience the consequence of God’s displeasure. We reap what we sow. Like a convicted felon put in jail we bear the weight of our crime. Yet Jesus is our advocate. He pleads for our case as written in the first letter of John. Because he has paid off all our iniquities, he can defend us against the Accuser.

There is no God like our God who pardons our sins and trespasses. Where our sin is deep, God’s grace is deeper still. He is not a God who stays angry forever but loves to show mercy.

He will again have mercy on sinful man and discard our shame into the depths of the sea.

As far as the East is from the West, so far has He taken our sins from us.

Friend, If you have sinned against God and against others, do not despair. He is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Just go back to Him. He will take you back, regardless of your condition. Just the way you are, cracks and all.

Return to Him. He has never stopped waiting.
