“…you may be sure that your sin will find you out”– Numbers 32:23
Old wrongs have a way of catching up with us. And old sins that have not been dealt with can lead to serious consequences. As David laments in Psalm 32 “when I kept silent, my bones wasted away”. But confessing our wrong restores our fellowship with the Lord: “I acknowledged my sin to you…and you forgave the guilt of my sin”. Through confession, we can enjoy God’s forgiveness.
God, it is time to come clean with You. I’ve held onto ____ for too long. Thank you that this sin is under the blood of Christ. Restore me to fellowship with You.
Christians can erase from their memory what God has erased from their record.
