Those who have fallen away from the Lord should remember this truth that He
is never beyond our call. No matter our iniquities, our mistakes or our
shortfalls we can call upon the Lord to be redeemed and reconciled back to
God again. Our sinfulness is not beyond His forgiveness. I know this
because it is written throughout Scripture that God's love, forgiveness and
redemption is welcomed to all who call upon His Name. The Lord waits as an
eager father ready to rescue us from our fallen nature. He will not cast
us away, but rather He will welcome us in with open arms. We can't fully
understand such love and yet it exists to all humanity without
reservation. His mercy reaches from everlasting to everlasting and His
unmerited favor and grace extends to us personally. His invitation is all
The good thing about God is that His faithfulness towards us isn't
dependent upon our faithfulness towards Him. His love for us reaches
beyond the greatest borders. His mercy towards us is without limit and
His grace is beyond our comprehension. We can call upon the Lord in
confidence knowing that we will be forgiven of our sins and made righteous
before God the Father through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. The
Lord Jesus makes us righteous through His shed blood on the cross. When
God looks down from heaven He sees us through the blood of Christ and now
calls us redeemed, forgiven and righteous. Don't believe the lie that God
is mad at you and that you are beyond His forgiveness. The Lord is
faithful to hear and answer your heartfelt prayers so be encouraged to call
upon Him today and be made righteous through Jesus Christ. He loves you
and wishes for you to be one with Him today and for the rest of your life.
I hope this message inspires and encourages your heart to see that God's
love for us is much more than we could ever comprehend for ourselves.
JUST CALL UPON HIM
The boy walked along the ocean shore. . .trying not to stray.
He looked up to his father saying, “Dad, I want to play.”
His father looked upon him, with love showing in his eyes.
“Do what you want to, my son. . .but do not leave my side.”
“I would never leave you Daddy, I love you way too much.”
But the boy took a step away, out of his father's range of touch.
He walked through the surf, the waves tickling one toe.
“If I take one more step in. . .” he thought, “Father will never know.”
His father called out to him, “Son, to me remain true!”
The boy thought with glee. . .“At the moment I don't need you!”
His father felt a sadness, but he held his tongue.
Sometimes lessons need to be learned. . .even when so young.
The boy stepped out a little further. . .the water covering his waist.
His father spoke with urgency. . .his father spoke with haste.
“My son, come back to me,” he said, “The day is almost done!”
“Not yet, Dad,” the boy yelled, “I'm having too much fun!”
But the boy did not have his father's insight so he could not yet tell,
The tide was coming in fast. . .there would be no time to yell.
“Father!” he tried to scream, as the water covered his head.
“I need you now, Daddy!” was what the boy had said.
And in a single instant his father was by his side.
“I thought you left me, Daddy. . .I thought you went to hide.”
The father looked upon his son. . .a tear streaming down his cheek.
The boy looked upon his father. . .and cried the sobs of the meek.
“I would never leave you son. . .for I love you just the same.”
“I was only waiting. . .for you to call upon my name.”
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Psalm 103:10-14 “He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us
according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so
great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from
the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Like as a
father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear Him. For
He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust.”
Romans 10:9-11 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture
saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.”
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men
count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any
should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
John 3:16-18 Jesus declares “For God so loved the world, that He gave His
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but
have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn
the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth
on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
