Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humblest himself greatly before the God of his fathers. And prayed unto Him: and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD, He was God. 2 Chronicles, Chapter 33, verses 11-13.
This is the most amazing passage! Manasseh used witchcraft, used people who contacted the dead, cast spells, were into Astrology and had his children walk through fire as some ritualistic show of loyalty, which really made God upset. After Manasseh was captured and became humble, he asked God to forgive him and God did. Pure and simple!
Even if we have made some pretty poor choices in our lives, God will forgive us, just as He did Manasseh if we turn to Him and truly turn our lives around.
