Come NOW, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isa 1:18-20)~~ God is calling us to come back NOW. He has reconciled us back to Himself and He is calling us to repentance and to choose life in Him that we may truly live. He is calling us NOW, while we are under conviction, not when we get ourselves ready but NOW! WHILE we were sinners He died for us, not when He thought we were ready, not after we completed our acts of penance, but WHILE we were in our mess. While our mess is in effect, right in the thick if it, while we are at our worst….God is calling us to repentance, to reconciliation, out of our convictions, NOW. Yes, He knows about it all, and He STILL wants us! Even though you have tried and failed and tried and failed and continue to do so, He still says “come”. We are so tired of trying to figure it out but He will never tire of working it out IF we will just come…and reason with Him…together right NOW. This was not meant for us to go at alone! The devil is a lie to tell you otherwise. The debt is paid in full and Jesus offers a perfect and clean slate by His hand. He is speaking NOW saying: I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee (Isa 44:22). There is the Lord’s offer. You can hit the RESET button right NOW! Just surrender to Him and yield to His will. Until we do these things our deliverance will always seem unreachable. Don’t wait for some specific time or signal or achievement – He’s looking for us NOW!
