Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame

Psalm 51 1-2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 51:1-2

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.

There isn’t anything you can do to earn God’s forgiveness. You are forgiven because of who God is not who you are. You are forgiven because God is merciful, loving and compassionate towards His people. God sent His only Son to pay the price for your sins. You have been washed from your sins by the precious blood of the Lamb. Confess that you are a sinner who needs a Savior and believe that Jesus died to save you. You can let go of the guilt and shame of sin you’ve been carrying with you because God has forgiven you and wiped your slate clean and now it’s time for you to forgive yourself and live the life God has planned for you.

Earnestly Seek God

Psalm 63 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:1

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

 

If you really want to have a closer relationship with God seek him by faith with a sincere heart and mind.  You must turn from evil, confess your sins and be obedient to his Word. Make spending time with him a priority over everything else. Humble yourself before him and worship him with all of your heart and you will surely find him.

Keep No Sin in Your Heart

Psalm 66 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 66:18

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my voice in prayer.

 

We all fall short of the glory of God.  We are not perfect but what we do when we fail God makes all the difference. Put aside your pride, acknowledge your sin and turn from it. Don’t let sin come between you and God. Don’t let sin destroy your fellowship with Him. Humble yourself before the Lord and confess your sins, ask for forgiveness and He will hear your prayers.
