You have been unconditionally forgiven




When you have sinned and failed God and feel hopeless, and people condemn you, there is a section of Scripture that gives us an insight into how completely God forgives and takes us back. In Isaiah 54 Israel is depicted as an unfaithful wife and God as a faithful compassionate husband who forgives her completely and restores her to communion with Him and His divine protection. This never-failing love through the image of a faithful husband restoring a faithless wife is a recurring theme throughout the Bible.


Hosea’s adulterous wife prostituted herself and Hosea was commanded to take her back and restore her to her former position as a lesson to show how God treats faithless Israel, and ultimately us us.

The woman of Samaria, doubtless regarded as a questionable woman who had had 5 husbands and was now the defacto of another, was not scorned but was personally invited by Jesus to accept the Messiah of Israel.


The woman caught in adultery and about to be stoned was unconditionally forgiven by the only One who had authority to judge her by virtue of His sinlessness.


So when God promised that whatever devious schemes or vicious judgments have been devised against us, they will one day be silenced by our heavenly Lord: “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; and every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from Me,” says the LORD” (Isa. 54:17 Amp. Bib).


No matter what evil is plotted against us or what malicious lies are spread about us in our time here on earth, our eternal souls are secure in Christ, for we have been declared righteous through Jesus.

We were created by God, knitted together in our mother’s womb by Him and God has appointed every day of our lives. No evil can befall us without His knowledge. God knows every path we will take and no matter what the devil plans against us, God will work in every circumstance in our lives to bring Him glory.


Remain confident in His consummate promises of grace. Those who condemn us are in accord with the devil and the day will come when they will be condemned forever: “Now you will see what I will do with those people who belong to Satan's group. They claim to be God's people, but they are liars. I will make them come and kneel down at your feet. Then they will know that I love you” (Rev. 3:9 CEV).
