God is able to save you!
The hand of the Lord is not too short to save you.
Neither is his ear too weak to hear you.
But the wrong things that you have done have made you separate from your God.
Your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not listen to you.
That is true for these reasons:
- Blood makes your hands red.
- The wrong things that you do are on your fingers.
- Your lips have said things that are not true.
- Also, your tongue quietly says bad things.
- Nobody asks for a judge to be fair.
- Nobody says things that are honest.
- People give reasons that do not mean anything.
- People say things that are not true.
- People think about how they can cause trouble.
- And then they do bad things.
See Isaiah 59:1-4
