The Promise of a Life that Repents

BIBLE MEDITATION:
At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; if that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.” - Jeremiah 18:7-8

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
God is saying here, “If you will repent of your sin, I will repent of the judgment I had planned.” That is a promise to every one of us today. Just because you may have failed in the past doesn’t mean that God is finished with you. Are you ready for some good news on the threshold of a new year?  You can have a brand new start!  There’s hope for you. Our God is the God of the second chance. Your life may be marred. Your life may have gotten off track because of some hidden sin or some stubbornness when you refused to yield to God.  But He is saying , “I don’t hold grudges. I am the God of the second chance.”

ACTION POINT:
This condition holds true for a life that is still pliable and gives God all the pieces.  If your life is broken, give Him all the pieces, but do it while it is still pliable, and He can make another vessel out of you.  Are you willing to do that?
