When the prophet Nathan came to David (2 Samuel 11-12), after David had the affair with Bathsheba, we know that David wrote Psalm 51 as a confession to God for his sin.
David realized his weakness and human frailty and became broken before God and repented.
There’s no one that is infallible, but most times when we do not create or maintain a relationship with God’s Holy Spirit, then we end up becoming susceptible to temptation and yielding.
When we, for various reasons, become lukewarm and carnal then the enemy comes in, that old serpent slithers its way in our lives to sift us in an effort to try to destroy us.
But I want to encourage someone and let you know that Jesus still loves you and has not condemned you so don’t condemn yourself and let NO ONE condemn you!
Should we continue in sin that Grace may abound? GOD FORBID! (Romans 6:1)
Though there is super abounding Grace, Love and Mercy of God, we should still refuse to be presumptuous out of respect and honour knowing our bodies are His temple.
What we should do however, is be broken and contrite like David and return to our REDEEMER in all humility.
There is Forgiveness for you and God is calling you back to Him, so He may cleanse and restore you to your rightful place in Him.
God wants you and I to be seated in Heavenly places with Him not in the mire to be trampled on. That mess you found yourself in and God delivered you from will be your message to a generation of God’s everlasting love and covenant for His own.
“And The LORD said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” Luke 22:31-32
God knows that the Tempter and the Accuser will come to assault us even with furious and violent temptations even tribulations even to try and expose us but has already made a way of escape and plan of restoration.
And when we are recovered from our fall, and confirmed again in faith and holiness; strengthen the brethren — All them that are weak in faith, or shaken in mind by trial, and ready to relinquish the service and duty..
When we are recovered by the grace of God, do what we can to recover others; when our own faith is strengthened, labour to confirm the faith of others, and to establish them; when we have found mercy, encourage others to hope that they also shall also find it.
God bless you..
