Coming Home, Coming Home, Lord, I'm Coming Home

October 16

Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 59 - 61

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 59:1 – “Behold, Jehovah's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:”

Ever feel that you have gone too far to come back? Maybe, you realize that the sin in your life has taken you a long distance from where God wants you to be. The old saying, “If you feel distance from God – He didn’t move” has made you realize that He seems so far out there.

I love this verse because it reminds me that my arms may seem short, but His arms reach far. We can never get too far away that God cannot reach us, cannot bring us back to His side. He can hear our faintest whimper or cry for His help. Verse 20 of this chapter gives great hope – “And a Redeemer will come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith Jehovah.” Turn back, and He will restore what you have lost.

Prayer: Lord, I’m coming home. As the song says, I am coming back to You. Amen
