DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JULY 29, 2018
7/29/2018 Is 59:1-2 Surely the arm of Yahweh is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your Elohim; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
This is perhaps the most eye-opening passage in the Word of Yahweh concerning the effect of sin. Plainly stated, sin separates. Sinners do not have their prayers heard by Yahweh. He removes Himself from their lives. Even when He can intervene in difficult situations, He will not do so. In short, Yahweh stays away from sinners. On the Day of Atonement, the priest would confess all of Israel’s sins and Yahweh would forgive. Today, we have Yahshua as our High Priest. If we confess our sins to Yahweh in Yahshua’s Name, Yahweh will forgive them. This will eliminate the gap that sin produced between Yahweh and us and restore a personal relationship with Him. Turn from sin today and rebuild the bond Yahweh wants to have with you.
