Isaiah 43:25 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Isaiah 43:25

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.

 

Last night, I had a dream, and in this dream, I went back to my old ways of using drugs and alcohol. Normally when one of these dreams occurs, it can be disheartening and maybe even disturbing, but not last night. At first, I thought it was an attack, but after praying into it this morning, I realized the Lord wanted me to share it and the point He made to me in it. I will save you the details, but basically, what happened is I went out partying for a little while but felt convicted and turned back to the Lord.

 

Here is where it gets interesting. In my dream, I’m talking to my mom, and I said something to the effect of, “I don’t really feel like that happened. I feel like the Lord is still with me and that He has wiped that away and forgiven me. That it was so far gone that it felt like it never happened!” Thank You, Lord! As I’m praying and meditating on it this morning, the Lord said something like this about my dream: “People often don’t turn back to Me because they are afraid of the consequences, so they continue to run from Me. They think they are running from judgment toward healing and safety when they are really running from healing and safety toward judgment!”

 

It blows my mind how gracious and merciful our Heavenly Father is! How after everything we have done or will do, He still has a heart willing to forgive us and cleanse us, not only in His sight but in our minds as well! So, I have to ask, what are you running from? Are you running from the Lord? If so, then stop, turn around, and embrace your Creator, His Precious Son, and the Spirit of Truth!

 

Hebrews 8:12 – “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."

 

God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise now and forever to Papa God, Jesus Christ our King, and the Holy Spirit!
