Sin Separates. – Isaiah 59:1-2

Isaiah 59:1-2 “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.”

What is God saying to me? Sin Separates. God is in the sin forgiving business. “His hand is not shortened that it cannot save.” However, my “iniquities have made a separation between” me and my God. This position before God is not were all people need to live. Isaiah 57:15 says “For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: ‘I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.’”

How will I obey? I will spend time right now searching my heart (Psalm 139:23-24), confessing my sin (1 John 1:9) and repenting (Matthew 4:17)

Who will I tell? I am going to look for an opportunity to share with someone outside of my circle of influence.

Are you distant from God?  Sin separates.  Confess, Repent and receive forgiveness.
