Good Morning my friends,
Have you ever tried to hide your sins? Do you have secret or private sins that only you know about? For many years I thought I was getting away with sin because it was done it private. Whether it was alone time surfing the internet or “innocent” flirtation with my vendors they were my very own hidden/secret/ private sins.. Only I knew about them…haha I find that harilious now, only because I was so caught up in my own little world that I thought I could hide my sins from God. These sins although they feel small most of the time can have a much bigger impact on your life because they will eventually lead to a chance to make more devastating sins. We have a tendency to separate us our sins according to big & small. We can separate our sins in degrees as much as we want but no matter how big or small the sin we commit is, they ALL have one HUGE consequence. That consequence is that they separate us from God. The further we move away from God the easier it becomes to commit even more sin. As a Christians, we should willingly ask God to search us daily from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet and cleanse us from all our sins.
“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,” (Acts 3:19)
Have you ever stopped to think how difficult it must’ve been for David to pray this prayer? It’s uncertain whether or not he penned these words before or after his terrible sin with Bathsheba. But either way, David knew he was capable of terrible sin and that like the majority of people his first impulse when he sinned was to deny it or try to hide it from God. David had to have a lot of courage to ask God to search out the darkest, most secret corners of his heart and mind. If you aren’t willing to do this often, then these sins that we know about remain unconfessed, and our fellowship with God remains cold and distant. More importantly, there are some hidden sins that you may not even realize you have like pride, suppressed anger, withheld love, jealously, a secret yearning for recognition. If these sins remain firmly in place they could eventually manipulate you and destroy you. Have the courage to pray this prayer. Whatever God reveals to you, confess it, repent of it, and ask Christ to replace it with His purity and love.
“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24)
My CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU… Ask God to search you. Whatever He reveals, confess it, repent of it, and ask Christ to replace it with His purity and love.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day… Blessing & much love…D
ALWAYS…..Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
