The Only Cure

Take words of repentance with you and return to the Lord.—Hosea 14:2

How do we deal with demandingness? We must repent of it. Our passage today tells us how.

First: “Return to the Lord.” The key to ridding ourselves of anything that is spiritually injurious is to return to God. The pursuit of God involves a shift away from dependence on one’s own resources to dependence on God. Doing good and correcting wrong behavior does not automatically make us good people. Obedience is extremely important, but it must be accompanied by deep, heart repentance.

Second, the passage says: “Take words of repentance with you.” This phrase means that we must put into words a clear description of what we are repenting of. If we are not clear about what is going on inside us, how can we repent of it?

Next: “Forgive all our sin.” Repentance puts us in touch with God’s forgiveness. We can work to bring about change also, but the greatest catalyst for change is humbly positioning ourselves before God and asking for His forgiveness.

Then: “Accept what is good, so that we may repay You with praise from our lips.” The thought here is: “Receive us that we may worship You more effectively.” The purpose of all restoration is to worship God. We will be drawn into true worship when we give up insisting on our own way and learn to trust God for our own happiness. When repentance moves us from a spirit of demandingness to absolute trust in God, then we are in the place where God is able to make our feet like “hinds’ feet” and equip us with the ability to ascend into the heights with Him.

Prayer             

Tender and skillful Invader of my heart, I yield my stricken being to You for healing. “Be of sin the double cure.” Drain every drop of demandingness from my being. For I want not only to be better but to be whole. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Further Study

Jl 2:12-18; Isa 55:7; Ps 34:18; 51:17

What does God not despise?

What does it mean to “rend your heart”?

Beloved, did you read that repentance put us in touch with God’s forgiveness? When you have received  forgiveness, your worship becomes a living sacrifice before God and as it goes up in heaven, the Lord receives it and pour down His blessings upon you.

Make your worship an acceptable sacrifice dearly beloved and repent of every sin and the glory of the Lord will locate you and bless you. Amen Amen Amen!!!

No more demandingness in our life, we will henceforth stand on the promise of God and allow His “Will” to flow through your life and make us obedient to Him alone in Jesus Name.

Come; let us sing this song together as we surrender our will into His Will:

Verse 1
I just want to be where You are,
dwelling daily in Your presence
I don’t want to worship from afar,
draw me near to where You are

Verse 2

I just want to be where You are,
in Your dwelling place forever
Take me to the place where You are,
I just want to be with You

Chorus
I want to be where You are,
dwelling in Your presence
Feasting at Your table,
surrounded by Your glory
In Your presence,
that’s where I always want to be
I just want to be,
I just want to be with You

Verse 3
I just want to be where You are,
to enter boldly in Your presence
I don’t want to worship from afar,
draw me near to where You are

Oh, my God,
You are my strength and my song
And when I’m in Your presence
Though I’m weak You’re always strong

(Repeat Verses 1 and 2)

Ending
I just want to be
I just want to be with You

Are you ready and willing to feast on His table? Are you willing to be surrounded by his glory? Do you desire to be in His Presence? Then the Lord will bless you as His Word have declared to us, He will heal us and do the impossible in our lives. Praise the Lord.

See you on Monday by his special grace amen, amen, amen!!!

Remain blessed in the Lord
