Never Too Wicked

27 When Ahab heard these words, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and fasted. He lay in sackcloth and went around meekly. 28 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite: 29 “Have you noticed how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself, I will not bring this disaster in his day, but I will bring it on his house in the days of his son.” ~ 1 Kings 21:27-29

King Ahab is known for being one of the most wicked kings Israel has ever had. Under him, the prophets of God were murdered, and the prophets of Baal and Asherah were elevated. The land lived in sin, as did he and his whole household. Yet, even when he, a wicked king, humbled himself before God, God heard his cries. See, Elijah had just prophesied destruction on not just Ahab but on his entire family because of his wickedness. When King Ahab heard all that was coming upon him and his household, he tore his clothes and fasted.

Many of us are currently living our lives very wickedly. We say we’re a good people, but we live in sin. We don’t acknowledge God unless we absolutely have to. In fact, we live our everyday lives as if He doesn’t even exist. Even though we do much wicked before the LORD, if we will humble ourselves before Him and seek His face with all that is within us, He will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Our past doesn’t dictate our lives, but our present does. What we do today will dictate our future. Therefore, turn to God. Repent and be saved. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done; if we will humble ourselves before the LORD, He will hear us from Heaven and forgive our sins.

Dear LORD, please forgive me for all the sin that I have committed. Please forgive me for living my life as if You don’t even exist. I humble myself at Your feet and ask You to be the LORD of my life. Thank You for Your grace, love, and mercy that gives me second chance after second chance. Help me to not return to my old self, but help me to remain a new creation in You. Please continue to change me and work on me so that I might be exactly who You want me to be. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
