Joel 2:12 ” Even now, declares the Lord, return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping, and mourning.”

Come back to God…for He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. (Ezekiel 33:11)  Turn back from the empty life you’ve been living and allow Him to show you the ultimate plan and purpose you were created for.  And the Lord Himself promises that if you seek Him, you will find Him, if you look for Him with all your heart. (Deuteronomy 4:29)  But the greatest promise is contained in the two words that begin this verse – Even now.  It means regardless of how far you’ve wandered…or despite what you’ve done in the past…right now, at this moment, the Lord is lovingly waiting for you to come back home.

Isaiah 45:22 ” Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”

The Lord says to you today…come back.  Turn around and face Me, for it’s only by Me that you can be delivered from all the evil that still clings to you.  You may have accepted Me in the past, but you are still a slave to things you have not been able to give up.  You have been set free of those things, but you either don’t fully realize it or just don’t want to leave them behind.  Change directions today… for those chains that have bound you in the past  have been broken off  –  you are no longer a victim…you are a victor.
