King David was a guilty man. He was an adulterer, a murderer…yet he was still given the benefit of forgiveness. You too can experience the great comfort of forgiveness when you:
- Stop denying your guilt and recognize your sin
- Admit your guilt to God and ask for forgiveness
- Surrender your guilt and believe that you have been forgiven
Letting go, and letting yourself off the hook can be hard, especially when the sin is deeply rooted and involves other people. Remember that Christ is not only able to forgive you, but he is willing. There is nothing so special about you that the magnitude of your sins cannot be forgiven.
God is so much bigger than whatever you can remember. He is bigger than your insecurity, and stronger than your sensitive conscience. First John (1:9) says, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Confess your sins before the Lord today; it’s time to let go. Stop holding on to the past mistakes you have made. Your self torture is only preventing your progression. We have all made mistakes. Sin is sin, no matter how minor or great we see it in our minds; all of us are guilty.
God loves you, and wants you to be of sound mind. He wants you to be free of the chains with which you are keeping yourself bound. Choose a life of freedom, choose joy; choose forgiveness.
