Today I want to share the idea of forgiveness. In Psalm 32:3-5 we see David saying
“When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.”
In this he tells us that when he refused to confess his sins to God, he would feel bad all the time. He was simply burdened by his non-confession. Then he goes on to tell us that when he finally confessed and asked for forgiveness, God forgave him and his burden and guilt was gone.
With this in mind, let’s not run from God. Let’s not try to hide our sins. He is all-knowing, all-mighty God. He is right and holy. He knows everything, when we do and don’t do something, so there is no point to hide or even try to hide our mistakes. Rather let’s pray for forgiveness because only the Lord can fill the hole in our hearts and remove the burden of guilt that comes along with sin.
God bless you and let’s confess together!
