You know those moments you have when you just totally lose it and have a hissy fit? Well, I had one last week. They are not good, not right, and we shouldn’t have them, but once in a while we just do. 😣😣
Through my hurt and tears and anger, the Lord came and encouraged me with the following Psalm. He did not come and excuse my behaviour, I had to repent and deal with my heart and my bad attitude. I hope this Psalm encourages and strengthens you too.
How happy and fulfilled are those whose rebellion has been forgiven, those whose sins are covered by blood!
How blessed and relieved are those who have confessed their corruption to God! For He wipes their slate clean and removes hypocrisy from their hearts.
Before I confessed my sins, I kept it all inside; my dishonesty devastated my inner life, causing my life to be filled with frustration, irrepressible anguish, and misery.
The pain never let up, for you hand of conviction was heavy on my heart. My strength was sapped, my inner life dried up like a spiritual drought within my soul.
Then I finally admitted to you all my sins, refusing to hide them any longer. So I said, “My life-giving God, I’ll openly acknowledge my evil actions.” And you forgave me! All at once the guilt of my sin washed away and all my pain disappeared!
This is what I’ve learned through it all: Every believer should confess their sins to God; do it every time God has uncovered you in the time of exposing. For if you do this, when sudden storms of life overwhelm, you’ll be kept safe.
Lord you are my secret hiding place, protecting me from these troubles, surrounding me with songs of gladness! Your joyous shouts of rescue release my break-through.
I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way, and lead you forth with My eyes as your guide.
So, don’t make it difficult. Don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make Me tug you and pull you along. Just come with Me!
So my conclusion is this: many are the sorrows and frustrations of those who don’t come clean with God. But when you trust in the Lord’s forgiveness, His wrap-around love will surround you.
So celebrate the goodness of God! He shows His kindness to everyone who is His! Go ahead! Shout for joy, all you upright ones who want to please Him!
