HIS GREAT FORGIVENESS

Day 159

“If we confess our sins to Him, He
is faithful to forgive us and to
cleanse us from every wrong”
1 John 1:9

People get into sin and they refuse to confess. It isn’t too long before the enemy whispers in their ear that they have gone too far. It’s implied that God won’t or care to forgive. This is a lie out of the pit of hell. Thank God that the glorious truth is we are not only a forgiven people, but that God has prepared a continuous cleansing for us.

David wrote that he was unwilling to confess sin – “When I refused to confess my sin” [Psalm 32:3]. He was in full rebellion. But he came to his senses and declared, “I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the Lord'” [vs 5]. In fact, the scriptures write about many who have experienced this.

What is important is the truth. If you are God’s child, the sacrifice of the cross covers your past, present and future sins. God knows our infirmities. He has made provision for us. Not only does He forgive, but He cleanses us from every wrong. He is a true and faithful Father who knows His children. Don’t let the devil or anyone else rob you of knowing you can instantly go to Jesus for forgiveness of your sins. It matters not how long, how bad, how rebellious you were. You are His child, He is your Father.

Don’t keep sin in darkness – bring it to the light by confession and repentance. Call on your loving Father now and be cleansed by the blood of His Son. He’s waiting on you.

“He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases”
Psalm 103:3
