Hosea 14:1-3 MSG
“O Israel, come back! Return to your GOD! You’re down but you’re not out. Prepare your confession and come back to GOD. Pray to Him, “Take away our sin, accept our confession. Receive as restitution our repentant prayers. Assyria won’t save us; horses won’t get us where we want to go. We’ll never again say ‘our god’ to something we’ve made or made up. You’re our last hope. Is it not true that in you the orphan finds mercy?””

We are reading today from the scripture portion from Hosea 14 from 1 to 3 verse.
This is the message of restoring that Hosea is speaking to the people of Israel.
God is saying that at the end of the story it’s not about the judgement but His mercy when the people repent.
When you confess and repent for what is been going wrong with you and come back to God, He will show His mercy towards you.
The prodigal son when he returned back home after repenting for the wrong he had done, the father threw a party on the very fact that he came back home. This is the kind of God we serve.
God is not looking for your profound words, He is looking for your hearts that will melt at the voice of His presence and your conscience will respond to Him.
Without God we are orphans. Everything else is temporary. If you are in that place, come back to God, come back to His presence today.
“Father every person who is listening to this podcast, I pray that they will have a deep encounter with Your heart. And as they have their encounter, I believe that You will speak to them and minister to them and change them from the inside out. There will be absolutely nothing that will stop them from pursuing you and repenting and changing their mind and ways and actions to align what you would want to do in their lives and come back to you. Help us to repent and surrender to your voice, in Jesus name we pray.”
God bless you!
