Hosea 1:8-9

Hos 1:8 When she had weaned No Tender Affection, she conceived and gave birth to a son.
Hos 1:9 And Yahveh said, “Name him Not My People, because you are not my people, and I am not your God.”

Any revival or work of restoration begins with the realization that our pedigree gets us nowhere. God wants to restore us to himself, but before he can do that, he has to show us that we cannot reform ourselves. We all begin in that rock-bottom place. Our restoration or salvation is all the more miraculous because of it.

LORD, here we are, and empty canvas for you to work with.
