Promises to the Repentant and the Humble

Repentance must come from a humble heart that realizes that their sin is keeping them from having a beautiful relationship with God.  If we study God's word and realize that we are sinners in need of a Savior, it is important for us to humble ourselves in the sight of God in order to be lifted up into His presence.  Micah 6:8 says, 'Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.'  I want to be lifted up into His presence, don't you?  I'm sure we all do.  It is the longing of the human heart to better ourselves and there is no better way than to humble ourselves and repent of our sins and let God lift us up into His presence.

Psalm 34:18  "The Lord is nigh unto those that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a      contrite spirit."  (Contrite meaning, repentant, remorseful, sorry)

Jeremiah 3:22  "Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings.  Behold, we come unto thee, for Thou art the Lord our God."

Joel 2"13  "And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil."

Micah 7:18  "Who is a God like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?  He retaineth not his anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy."

Luke 15:7  "I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance."

Acts 2:38  "Then Peter said unto them.  Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."

Acts 3:19  "Repent ye therefore, and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord."

I pray that you are being blessed from all these promises from God.  Remember that this is how we become partakers of His nature, by believing in His promises. God bless you.  Grandma Joan
