A True Story

November 4, 2009

I was 12 when I became king.

I am evil at heart.

I will do everything I can to desecrate the name of God.

 

I have built altars to idols in the place of God’s honor.

I love the stars, and they have become my guide.

I seek the starry hosts more than the host of hosts.

 

I tied my sons up.

Bound their screaming bodies together.

I burned them alive, to appease the “gods.”

 

I have practiced witchcraft…

……………………..sorcery……….

………………………divination…..

 

I have been more evil than any other king.

I have led the people of God away…on purpose.

I have ignored the tangible voice of God.

 

I have now been captured.

A hole has been driven through my nose, and a hook placed there.

I am shackled and led to Babylon.

 

I AM EVIL.

………………………………….

………………………………but

 

 

I prayed today.

I sought God with my heart, what little is left.

I repented in my distress……………..and……

 

………………………….God FORGAVE me.

He freed me from Babylon.

He returned my kingdom to me.

 

I removed all the idols and worthless “gods.”

I have rebuilt the city.

I returned the nation to making proper sacrifices to God.

 

I was EVIL………………….

……………………………..but

I was forgiven.

 

 

May you who read this find grace today. May you understand that no level of evil will ever outweigh the overshadowing love of a Father who would do anything to love you. A simple love, yet one that cannot be explained. May you receive freedom from what holds you back, and courage to walk in your God ordained future.

 

Grace.

 

Ben
