Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
I once read of a king who was touring a prison and as he walked by the cells,  all the prisoners were begging him for pardon because they claimed to be innocent. 
He finally came to a prisoner who was sitting quietly in his cell. The king said, "I suppose you were falsely accused and you are innocent of any wrong too."
The prisoner hung his head in shame and said, "No your highness.  In stole from another and I was caught.  I am guilty, I am ashamed and I deserve my punishment."
The king called to the guards, "Guards, turn this guilty criminal loose at once. If we keep him here he will only corrupt all these fine innocent men."
All men need to confess their guilt. We need to recognize the terrible wickedness of sin and ask God for mercy.
I see on the news where sinful people are crying out to get what they deserve.  Many times they are the champions of an ungodly cause yet they want people to not only tolerate and accept them but to openly embrace their lifestyles.  If they ask for what they deserve instead of mercy and pardon, they are in for a terrible shock.
We have compiled an E-book of our devotionals in .pdf format. We will send them to you attached to an email.
