God’s Grace is Able to Restore Our Lives (Noon)

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Isaiah 1:10-20

RHEMA

Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.

On one fine morning, Kelly was rushing to get ready for a presentation at her office meeting which was about to start in less than an hour. She rushed into the elevator as soon as the door opened. Someone from the elevator stepped out with a cup of coffee in hand. She hit him. The coffee spilled on her blouse. Panicked, she ran to the bathroom. Luckily, she brought another blouse, but the one spilled with the coffee was her favorite. She tried to wash it with hand soap in the bathroom sink, but the stain wasn’t removed. Because the presentation was 20 minutes away, she put the dirty blouse in a plastic bag and she rushed to his office.

When she got home, she told his mother. She regretted her favorite blouse could no longer be worn. Her mother took the blouse from Kelly’s hand and walked to the back of the house. Out of curiosity, she followed in her mother. Her mother took a bottle and poured some liquid onto the coffee stain. She rubbed the blouse. Not long after, Kelly saw a miracle. The stain disappeared as the water streamed down the tap. Seeing her daughter’s face, the mother said, “There is no stain that can’t be removed when you use the right soap to clean it.”

The story above reminds us of our relationship with the Father. As humans, we all have sinned. And the devil often uses that past as a material to accuse us, to make us feel intimidated as if that dirty stain could never disappear from our lives. However, realize that when God gave His only begotten Son to atone for our sins, He had completely and thoroughly cleaned all the stains of sin in our lives. No matter how big the mistake we have ever made, there is not one that cannot be cleaned by His blood that has been shed for us all. Believe and accept with faith that God’s great grace can restore our lives. And don’t receive the devil to accuse us of saying otherwise.
