DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
The Door Is Not Yet Closed
1 Kgs. 21:25-29
The good news for you this morning is that God is still interested in you. Despite the fact that Ahab sold himself completely to what was evil in the Lord’s sight, and being one of the most wicked kings in Israel (1 Kgs.16:30), when he repented in deep humility, God showed mercy and reduced his punishment. The same Lord who was merciful to Ahab wants to be merciful to you. No matter how evil you have been, it is never too late to humble yourself, turn to God and ask for forgiveness. He will receive you to Himself. Do it now and not later.
Point of Emphasis: God looks even to a man of poor and contrite spirit.
Prayer Point: Father, with humbleness of heart, I ask for forgiveness in all areas I have sinned against You.
