Turn from a Life of Sin

Just twelve when he became king of Judah, Manasseh’s reign was dominated by wickedness. He worshiped false gods and even practiced witchcraft, encouraging this ungodly behavior among his people. God warned him about the consequences of his actions, but Manasseh paid no attention.

Then Manasseh was taken to Babylon, bound with chains. While he was in exile, something remarkable happened! He “humbled himself greatly” before God, who answered his prayer of repentance. Manasseh’s eyes were opened to the impact of his mistakes. He realized the importance of living according to God’s Word. He was given a second chance when he was returned to Jerusalem. This time he sought to serve God.

What an amazing turnaround! Despite the evil Manasseh had done in the past, God was moved by his genuine repentance and humility.

As Manasseh’s life demonstrates, God has given us His Word. He promises us blessings if we obey, but He warns there are consequences if we live in sin. We always reap what we sow. But this story also demonstrates that God can change any life – even a person as wicked as Manasseh.

This turnaround is possible even for people dominated by evil who live ungodly lives. He can turn around any situation and the life of any person who repents and calls on Him.

Do you know someone living far from God? Who needs to change? Commit them to God and pray for a turnaround. Have faith!
