We have a loving God who can change our life completely, whatever the situation prevailing around. He is ready to forgive our trespasses and turn our life upside down. He makes a new covenant with you, “... they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.... For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more” (Jeremiah 31:34). Yes, His loving kindness will fill our soul and refresh us with His mercy.
Once, a woman called Ann was working with a family in a foreign country. She was very good in her work but the moment she got angry, she would fling the vessels all over the place. Therefore, the people in the family saw to it that she did not get irritated or lose her temper. One day, suddenly she lost her balance and became very angry. Somehow, she realized her weakness instantly. She felt an aversion for her own indecent behaviour. Immediately, she knelt down and prayed, “Lord! You are the only One who can change this bad habit of mine. Yes, Lord! Change me now and make me Your dear daughter.” The Lord, who forgives the sins of those who repent, forgave all her sins. He made her clean and adorned her with the power of His redemption. After sometime, He anointed her with His Holy Spirit. Besides that, He also very graciously gave her the gifts of His Holy Spirit. This is what we read in the Bible, “Where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Romans 5:20). When people saw the grace and the gifts she had received from God, they started seeking her for prayers. For many people, she became, “a daughter of comfort.” The family for whom she worked were very proud of her. When she died all called her ‘Holy Ann.’ Mayor of the city also honoured her by attending her funeral service. This woman who started her life as a domestic servant, ended up as a great servant of God because of His grace and blessing upon her life.
Today, if you want to receive the same divine grace, firstly, submit to the convictions of the Holy Spirit. Then, pray sincerely, “Lord! Cleanse me and take away my sins and trespasses by Your grace. I believe in Your cleansing blood. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit.” The God who has promised, “I will make an everlasting covenant with you” (Jeremiah 32:40) will come and dwell in your heart permanently and make you His ‘Holy Temple.’ He will put His sanctuary among you forever (Ezekiel 37:26).
