What if you could press a button and reset the year 2020? Or what if you could press that same button and reset the last 2, 5, 10 years of your life? What if you could wipe away and erase all the pain and disappointment you suffered for your entire life?
Wouldn’t you like a reset button? I can almost see you nodding your head in agreement as you read this. Well, there is no physical button to press, however, there is a way to start over in life. There is a way to clean your slate and lead a prosperous life.
‘But Bishop, there are so many problems and so much chaos going on in this world…’ – Yes, this is true, but you can experience newness of life even in the midst of all this chaos!
In the past, time and time again, the children of Israel would walk in the presence of God, then fall into various temptations – disobeying God’s commandments, then would later repent and receive God’s forgiveness. This cycle has been repeating itself throughout history. Our God is so merciful and patient, to the point where He gave us the secret to starting over when we fail.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”(2 Chronicles 7:14)
Humbling yourself means letting go of all the things you think you know. It means recognizing that you need God – recognizing that all this time you have been trying to do things on your own, but it just has not worked out. It is not easy to accept this, but it is necessary for those who need this reset in life because until you do, your land will not be healed. Your family will not be united, your finances will remain blocked, that empty feeling inside of you will not go away…
God is calling everyone, He does not pick and choose favorites. ALL are welcome to come to Him, it is up to each one of us to obey or not.
And what about you… what will you choose?
May the God of the Bible bless you
Bishop Joshua Fonseca
