And all the people said to Samuel, “Pray for your servants to the Lord your God, that we may not die, for we have added to all our sins this evil, to ask for ourselves a king.” And Samuel said to the people, “Do not be afraid; you have done all this evil. yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. And do not turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver, for they are empty. For the Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself”. ~1 Samuel 12:20-22
God does not cast us away when we sin. On the contrary, He encourages us to draw closer to Him because He loves us so deeply!
We don’t have to fear, our Lord will never forsake us! His desire is to rescue us from our sin and ourselves; not because of any merit or goodness on our part, but because of HIS Great Name! We all stumble at times. And there is no one who does not sin. But be encouraged; turn back to the Lord and serve Him with all your heart. His arms are open to you!
