We love the idea that God is a God of second chances. No matter how many times we mess up our lives, He is still willing to give us another chance, another opportunity to get it right. That simply shows us how wonderful He really is.
But we, as humans, can be very stubborn at times; especially, when it comes to obeying God’s rules and living under His authority. Like we did as children, we push to see just how far we can go to stretch the boundaries and limits God has established for us.
Isaiah 6:9-12 tells us that God can get so frustrated with us; that He allows our eyes, ears and hearts to become closed to His blessings and provision. He will allow us to experience the bottom of the dry well of divine resources.
Only through being sorry and truly turning away from our own personal desires and agendas, and going back to the Lord, can we be set free. Forgiveness is available, but we must really want it and accept His conditions to receive it.
His desire is to give us another chance to obey His commands. Realistically, it is easy to do, and it doesn’t get us in trouble. It opens the pathway to His wonderful blessings and love! So open your heart and give God a second chance to allow you another chance, you will receive His wonderful love and all consuming peace! Enjoy your life!
