God did not send His Son to die on the cross for us to be trapped in the bondage of addiction, infirmity or self hate. You were created in His image. He knows the number of hairs on your head and calls you by your name. How can you despise what He loves?
For 15 years, I would fill my body with toxins, sell my soul to the devil and then cut myself to relieve the pain. I thought that I was the worse person God created. Jesus blood covered every sin except for mine. Isaiah 53:5,6 says “He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned – every one – to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
So guess what? It’s gone, it has been washed as far as the east is from the west. There is not one sin too big or too small. His blood covers it all! Isaiah 1:18,19 says “Come now, 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 become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” These are not just mere words, this is Truth, spoken from His mouth.
Psalm 6:9 says, “The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer.” As he heard my prayer, he hears you also. That is the reason you are reading this. If you are ready to cast all your burdens on Him; open your heart to Him, repent of your sins and keep a repentive heart.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
Thank you Lord for loving ( ), so much that you gave your one and only Son, that when ( ) believes in Him he/she will not perish but have eternal life. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord, Amen.
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits, Who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.”
