Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
Psalms 32:1 (NLT)
How clear is your conscience? How heavy is your heart with unconfessed sin? David knew how important it was to keep his conscience clear with the Lord. He wrote, “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.” Two things need to happen in order to get out of this dilemma. The first is to repent. That simply means to agree with God. Our behavior and attitude was wrong, an offense to God. It was sin. The second is to tell God about it and seek His forgiveness. This is confession. The great news is He is waiting with His unconditional love and forgiveness. David knew the joy of forgiveness. He wrote about the freedom he experienced. He said, “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.” Today examine your heart. Confess any sin to God and be forgiven and free.
Dear Father, help me search my heart. Help me acknowledge any sin that has offended you. I desire Your forgiveness and clear conscience. In Jesus’ Name.
