“Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.””
Mark 1:41 NKJV
You can replace "cleansed" with whatever you need from Jesus today. Just believe in His compassion.
I think cleansing is a great word because, cleaning is a process. Sometimes we don't stay long enough, all the way to completion. Our enemy has devised many ways to discourage us. His aim is to make the strong weary. To beat you down into nothing. To make you forgot who your God is and who you are. Amazingly, if or when this happens our High Priest Jesus still has a plan. He actually uses this weakness to prune us and make us stronger. Yes, Jesus can use the destruction of our faith in Him to build something more like Him.
So you see, it's never over. It's never out of reach. It's never too late. It's never too much. Truly, we can never be defeated. A God that can use your failures to help you find true success is an amazing god indeed.
Jesus is so committed to our freedoms, peace, and fullness of LIFE. He doesn't let defeat win.
