"Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy." ESV
It's human nature to want to hide those things we know are sin. We work increasingly hard to keep these things private so others will not find us out. But, this keeps us stuck in our spiritual walk with Christ and we sit guilt ridden, with fear of exposure, and physically ill from the pressure of carrying hidden sin. We cannot hide our sin from God. But we can be set free from the burden of sin by stopping it, approaching God, and confessing our sin to Him. With His loving forgiveness, He will shower us with His mercy.
Heavenly Father, we rejoice that You are always ready to forgive us when we come to You confessing and repenting of our sin. Give us courage, insight, and strength to face our own sins, so that by Your mercy, there will be nothing standing in the way of our spiritual prosperity. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
