Today is a great day to acknowledge our sins to God and the iniquity we have hidden. Today we proclaim change.
Sin blocks our fellowship with God. It keeps us from experiencing His goodness.
As humans we often repeat the sins that have been forgiven. We feel discouraged because we have difficulties overcoming them and feel we have failed. We fear we have lost fellowship with God. Good news, God is a God of many chances.
This is the day we free ourselves. Ask God to apply His forgiveness one more time and receive His mercy, this time with conviction.
Confession spiritually cleans our hearts. This is the day we proclaim victory over our sins and enter fellowship with our Lord. We will no longer carry unconfessed sin in our hearts allowing it to keep us weak, discouraged, and miserable.
“Be Glad in the Lord and rejoice you righteous; shout for joy, all you upright in heart! (Ps 32:11)
