Do you spend much time thinking about all your sins? If you’re anything like me, you probably have answered no to that question!
It’s true, we all know we sins many times each day, but are probably all guilty of not talking to God about our sins, acknowledging our failures before God, and accepting His forgiveness for our sins.
We must acknowledge our sins to God so that He can forgive us and help us do better in the future.
I think we walk around with some unconfessed sins on our shoulders, and we all know how debilitating it can be walking around feeling guilty and burdened by sin.
It takes strength to admit our faults, but it’s only by doing so we will ever be truly forgiven. So when we pray we must freely admit to God all our sins. No only will that allow us to receive God’s forgiveness, but it will lift the burden of sin from our shoulders.
Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the LORD— and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
