MFM Daily Devotional 8 May 2023 MESSAGE

Before you go to God in prayer, there is a major issue that you need to settle first. You must repent of your sins. Go to God with a clean slate. If you want Him to hear your prayers and answer them, then you must clear the way by confessing known and unknown sins in your life. You should also claim the forgiveness and cleansing that He promised in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all our unrighteousness.”

Dearly beloved, sin is a big issue with God. When Jesus carried the sins of the world on the cross of Calvary, God looked away from Him and Jesus cried. Matthew 27-46 says, “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice saying, Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani? that is to say, My God, My God, why has thou forsaken me?” If sin could make God to turn His back on His only begotten Son, how much more we as humans. We must run away from sin.

Sin means success in nothing. No one can profit anything by committing sin. In today’s Fire Scripture (Isaiah 59:1-2), the Bible says that the hand of God is not short, that it cannot deliver. Spiritual shortcomings, rebellion against God (the desire to do their own things) have prevented many people from receiving God’s promised blessings
Iniquity means perversion or crooked behaviour.

It speaks of being guilty of immoral and unjust acts toward God. This type of sin and wickedness in our lives puts a wall between God and us. Because of this barrier, many people can no longer experience the blessings of salvation: God’s favour, protection and answers to prayer. So, to get our prayers. answered, we must be free of all manner of sins. Come unto Him today. Forsake all your sins and He will bless you.
