Psalms 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Psalms 32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
Confession is a sign of godliness; it brings me to the place where we can find God and oh how I need Him daily!
God is my hiding place
God keeps me from trouble
God surrounds me with songs of deliverance
God instructs me
God teaches me the way I should go
God guides me
God surrounds me with His mercy
When David did not confess his sin he said
My bones waxed old – I think he felt very ill and weak
Day and night God’s hand is heavy upon me – that is a miserable feeling.
I wept till there were no more tears
I am so thankful that I can come to the Lord anytime as His child and have the assurance that He will forgive when I confess. Then what a burden is lifted and how blessed I am!
Psalms 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
