Pastor Pat Taiwo-Oguntoye
A plea for help! I can hear someone cry out loud, today God I feel broken, lonely and hopeless. God I have lost my directions and I need you to guide me and help me to find my way back to you.
God is there a way you can make a new start? Is there any way I can find my way back to you? If you will help me I will lay aside the sins that have not only captivated me, but also separated me from not only you but also the ones I love. God I will come with an open and obedient heart willing to make the necessary changes in my life. I follow your instructions and do your will and not mine. This is a prayer of real repentance, a prayer that says God your way is right and I am wrong, not my will but your will be done.
God isn’t interested in how much we say, but how repentant we are and this moves God to forgive us. Matt 15v 8-9 states that: This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honored me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Isa 59 v1-2 states that behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God and your sins have hid his face from you that he will not hear.
God will use somebody to preach His word to you. 1st Cor. 1v 21-23 states that: For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block and unto the Greeks foolishness;
I stand before you this morning, and I am telling you that God is ready to bring you out if you are willing to follow Him and do His will. There is help and victory in the blood of Jesus. God wants to turn your captivity into freedom, and turn your misery to peace. He wants to turn your dead life to a life of love and forgiveness.
Has it ever crossed your mind that God wants to use you, but the world is training you to be carefree, giving you worldly and life’s pleasure, a life with no restrictions? Are you ready to change and obey Him, or are you stuck with the world? Think about it, change your ways. God is merciful and His mercy endures forever.
God loves you, remain blessed in His presence in Jesus name.
