    Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, 'Does Job fear God for nothing? Haven't you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now, and touch all t...

White as Snow

  • 'Come now, and let's reason together', says Yahweh: 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land; Isaiah 1:18 WEB

    I grew up in the country and I have always loved ATV's, four wheel drives, dirt bikes, off roading, and mud bogging. For a while, there was a group of us that would set out at night on our ATVs and race through the mud, splashing each other every time that we got the chance to do so. Passing through swamp water deeper than the headlights, drowning the engine out and being pulled back home, or being winched from a ditch were often a part of the festivities.

    By the end of the night, you would have had less mud on you if you had just rolled in it, because it would splash and dry, splash and dry, and soon you wore a thick crust of dried mud that was heavy and cracked when you walked. When we finally got back home, you couldn't tell what race of people we were, and we would have to wash in the yard with a water hose before entering the house to take a shower.

    In that light, some of us have done some spiritual mud bogging in our days and you can no longer tell that we were once a Christian. All evidence has been covered over now by a thick crust of mistakes, shame, and defeat. We begin to feel as if there is no way that all of that is ever coming off for it is just too much. All of our past builds up into a heavy burden and we will not turn to the One who can take it away because we feel that He is mad at us, or ashamed of us, but that is only a lie that the enemy wants you to believe.

    Whether your sins are one or a million, the Lord will wash you right now if you simply ask Him. In one minute your entire life can be washed as 'white as snow' for God is not mad at what you have done in the past. He loves you, and He will give you a fresh start if just take a moment to talk to Him today.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for redeeming me, for buying me back from the enemy. Now I am Yours. Forgive me of the things that I have done wrong, cleanse me, wash me as white as snow and guide me from this day forth, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen though we fail Him and we wallow in the mud, we only need to ask for forgiveness and it is given. He will always forgive and He will continue to wash us clean, until the end of our days.

Indeed, if Jesus promised Paradise to the "good theif" hanging next to Him, He will grant us eternal life, too!
