Blessed is he whose transgressions is forgiven, Whose sin is covered…Psalm 32:1, 5
I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.
Good Morning! I pray you are feeling the Lord’s touch as you start your day. It is a blessing to confess our sins to our Father in heaven. David tried to hold his confession (Psalm 32:3, 4) but it became a burden to him. When he confessed and repented, the Lord lift the burden by forgiving him and David felt relief.
All of us have had to repent for a sin we’ve committed at some point in our lives. If we haven’t, then we need to reexamine ourselves because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
When we come clean before the Lord, confess and repent from our sins, we are blessed with forgiveness. We shouldn’t do like David did and try to hide our sin by not confessing it. It will only eat away at us and cause a disconnect between us and our Father in Heaven.
When we come clean before the Lord, confess and repent from our sin, we are blessed with forgiveness.
I remember doing wrong as a child. I walked around hoping my dad wouldn’t find out about it. Whenever I came close to him I knew he had found out about what I did and hand me the punishment. Sometimes the burden would overwhelm me and I told on myself (I confessed). Honestly, it felt better confessing than walk around with the guilt and threat of punishment hanging over my head.
So know it’s a blessing to be forgiven, and the only way the Lord will forgive us is we confess and repent of the sin we committed.
