"Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear. But your
iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken falsely, and your tongue mutters wicked things." Isaiah 59:1-3
As I was reading this passage, it was comforting in being reminded that our God never leaves us. He hears all our requests, and He will always keep us in His grasp.
It's our iniquities that drift us away from God, and it's God's gift of forgiveness that bridges us back. It's our hands that are stained with blood, and it's Jesus who washes us white as snow. It's our sinful actions and words that make us guilty, and it's Jesus who redeems us. It's not in our power or what we can do, it's what HE can do!
