If you were to look outside on a dark, stormy day, would you think the sun had disappeared, just because you couldn't see it? Of course not.
Yet, some of you may be beside yourselves tonight because you've failed the Lord so badly you can't imagine Him still being faithful to you. "After all," you reason, "we reap what we sow. I've hit hard times and haven't sown anything, so I guess I can't expect anything from the Lord. I don't know if I'll ever pull out of this rut."
But, as valid as God's principle of reaping and sowing is, there's another part of His Word, even more powerful, which says, "If we are faithless...He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself...He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you" (II Timothy 2:13 and Isaiah 30:19, AMP).
So, tonight, rest securely in the knowledge that there is nothing you can do to diminish His faithfulness to you, even if you haven't been faithful to Him! Believe that He will be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. When He hears it He will answer you! He understands the circumstances of your life and wants to help you draw close to Him again!
God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, thank you that You cannot deny Yourself, no matter what I've done or left undone, but will remain true to Your nature and Your Word. You are the Ever Faithful One, so although I've been too depleted to give, You are here to help me up. I call out for Your mercy and praise You for giving me the resources I need to start over again. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
