The Message (MSG)
7-10So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.
Dear Father, we thank you so much for your gift of restoration. Lord when we have found ourselves in a mess and dirty with sin, you were our way out. One touch from you changes our lives and gives us hope for a brighter future. We thank you for your ultimate plan to purify our inner life and present us proudly before yourself. We thank you that as we hit rock bottom, you are there to lift us, cleanse and make us whole in you. You are an awesome God with an awesome plan of redemption. We thank you, in Jesus Name! Amen.
