“Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all.”
Psalms 65:3 (NLT)
Sin happens. Especially sin that is the result of your emotions. Your senses pick up something is wrong and a chemical reaction sparks a primary emotion in the limbic region of your brain. Before you can think about it, your secondary emotions begin to flood your mind. Worry turns to fear, fear to anger, anger to depression and on and on. Then to make it worse, your thinking comes on line and you try to alleviate all this pain by taking the easy way out. And the easy way out usually involves sin. Some use addictions, others avoidance, some lash out in anger, and some hide behind pride. Whenever our emotions start flooding our brains, we will do whatever it takes to make the pain go away. David knew what it was like. He had emotions. He became overwhelmed by his situations and like us, he reacted in ways that were not Godly. So much so, that his sins began to overwhelm him. He was on a downward spiral, spinning out of control. But David found out the answer. He turned to God. Not just for a temporary fix, but for the cure. He turned to God, confessed his wrongdoing and God forgave him for everything. God wants to do the same for you. Today, come to God. Turn over your emotions to Him. Confess your sin and be forgiven and you can shout like David, “Though I was overwhelmed by my sins, God forgave them all.”
Father, I get so overwhelmed with all my sin. The pressures, the pain, the negative critical thinking that constantly drags me down; I bring it all to You. Forgive me for all my sins. Heal me. Take away my guilt and set me free. In Jesus’ name.
