    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

The Call of The Dark Side

  • They heard Yahweh God's voice walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, 'Where are you?' Genesis 3:8 WEB

    Adam walked with God in the garden, but after disobeying His command, withdrew and tried to hide because of it. The serpent talked Eve into risking their relationship with God so that they could have the knowledge of 'Good and Evil.' Since they already had the knowledge of good, it was only the knowledge of evil that they gained. The call of the dark side overcame them. Immediately after they fell, the enemy brought shame and fear in order to drive them even further away, and convinced them to hide from the presence of God.

    I find it comforting that the Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, asked Adam 'Where are you?' instead of pointing directly at him. God knew where Adam was better than Adam did, but He just called to him and waited for Adam to respond. God gave Adam space, and called for him from a distance. He could just have easily struck Adam with a lightning bolt or picked him up by his ear, but instead He waited for Adam to come back to Him on his own.

    When you stumble, God will always be calling for you. You can run, but you can't hide from the presence of the Lord. The mistakes that you have made, He already knows about and there is nothing to hide from. Jesus has already paid for YOUR sin, even the ones in your future. With a simple prayer, you can have a clean slate and be washed as white as snow. Don't try to cover your mistakes. His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Don't put on a church face for we are not fooling Him with our religious shenanigans. Just be real, and be you, and talk to Him wherever you are without hiding.

    Prayer: Father, I thank You today for Your mercy. I pray that You draw my heart to You and teach me to hear Your voice clearly. May Your will be done, in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

One of the most effective lies of Satan is, "You blew it, God won't forgive you again." As Satan fills our already self-condemned souls with these lies, people become frozen, they don't move forward. They are consumed with guilt and shame and Satan keeps them in this dark place. They walk away from the God who loves them so much and begin a downward spiral. It may last a few hours, a few days, months or even years, as long as they keep listening to Satan's lies. God doesn't leave them though, He just stands right there waiting for the day when they will realize that Jesus paid it all, that Jesus will never forsake them, that Jesus paid the price, that their sins are forgiven, it is finished! Oh so much of our lives can be wasted in this desert, so I say, if you are feeling unforgiven, forsaken, turn my friend, turn, Jesus is right there, God is right there, they are waiting for you to return with open arms!

During my most  sinful years GOD keeps on asking me "Where I am". GOD is always calling me inspite of all my faults and sins and though I keep on running aways from HIM, GOD still loves me and forgive me for all my sins.  I know now that I am forgiven for I am at peace with my past knowing that JESUS CHrist has already paid for my sins and even the ones in my future.  Thank you so much LORD GOD for always loving me, and always being there for me.  Amen
