In Isaiah 64, we read the following words: “You are indeed angry, for we have sinned – in these ways we continue; and we need to be saved.” Such is the prayer that rises up from the lips of the sinner, before the very throne of God. There is hopelessness and hope hidden herein. Hopelessness, because the sinner admits his inability to stop sinning. “In these ways we continue,” the sinner cries, “and we need to be saved.” In spite of the utter ruin that the sin is bringing to his own life and the life of his family, he cannot stop. He is in need of divine intervention. And then, hope. Hope, because salvation exists. Hope, because the sinner knows that God is well able to hear him and save Him from the pit of despair and destruction in which he finds himself. Dear friend, the grip of sin is too strong for you to escape without heavenly help. Only God Himself is stronger than sin. Call on Him today, ask Him to help you, to save you. He shall come to your aid, lifting you from the pit in which you find yourself.
