Confess and be restored

Daniel 9:4 NLT says, “I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: “O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands.” This prayer happened at a time when the people of God had turned away. The Bible tells us that God is always ready to accept those who have gone astray. Always ready to welcome the heart who honestly confesses their wrongdoing and their desire to come home. Just like the father in Luke 15 who welcomes the prodigal son home, the door is always open. Dear God, I am sorry that I once followed You and I have gone my own way. Please forgive my sin and rebellion. Today I ask to come home. I pray I will follow You all the days of my life. Amen.
