*I was reminded of something I wrote some time back and that is why I am writing this post today.
This post is dedicated to everyone who has made mistakes and think God has turned His back
on them. As you will read, that is not true. He loves you and will do all He can to get you back
“And when the morning was past, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became
his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done was evil in the sight of the Lord.”
2 Samuel 11:27
This was one of David’s darkest periods of his life. He slept with Bathsheba and got her husband killed.
To make things worse he was blind to his sin. He never repented, he never confessed his sin. Somewhere,
somehow his heart became hardened. I want to stop here for a bit.
We all make mistakes, we all mess up in life. What we need to pray for is for the Lord to correct, and to intervene
like He did for David. He could have left him in his sin but He didn’t. He confronted him about what he
did and delivered him. Because He loved David, the Lord sent Nathan.
The Lord knew David wasn’t going to snap out of sin on his own so in His mercy and grace He stepped in.
We need YAH to step in for us always. We can’t fight sin on our own. We need Him.
David messed up bad but the Lord didn’t abandon him. He was patient with him even when he was blinded.
He was blinded for nine months but the Lord never left. When the baby was born the Lord sent Nathan.
We need His mercy and grace more than we know. We will fall, we will make mistakes but the Lord
will not abandon us when we do. He will pick us up, He will confront us and He will deliver us.
But the biggest thing we need to overcome is thinking the Lord’s plan for our life, His goodness, and His
mercy stops when we mess up.
That’s not true. There is hope. Let me show you why I think so,
“David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went to her and lay with her; and she bore a son and she
called his name Solomon. And the Lord loved [the child].
He sent [a message] by the hand of Nathan the prophet, and [Nathan] called the boy’s [special]
name Jedidiah [beloved of the Lord], because the Lord [loved the child].”
2 Samuel 12:24, 25
Out of the horrible mess David was in, the Lord turned it into something beautiful. And that’s how
good Yeshua is. David’s life was not over. The Lord didn’t take back all the amazing things He promised
him. I think of David’s other wives, Abigail to be precise. She was amazing. Surely YAH could have used
her to show David how great, and amazing He was?? He didn’t. Instead, He took a
horrible moment, a terrible situation in David’s life and turned it around into something beautiful.
There is a lesson here for all of us. The Lord can take what’s painful, what’s horrible and turn it into
something beautiful. David could not take the glory for what happened. All glory went to YAH.
It was very clear He had performed a miracle in His life.
Don’t throw in the towel today. You may be in distress, guilty, condemned because of something
you have done but the Lord can turn it around. He has not abandoned you friend. He has not
turned His back on you. And that is why He is our God!
No matter how dark your past has been, He can and will light it up. There is nothing too hard for
the Lord. Put all your hope in Him. Call out to Him. Don’t stay silent.
With that have a great weekend friends….
Blessings to you.
