Proverbs 28:13 Who-ever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
Greetings!! Of the day.
Well my friends the very word to confess has a much deeper meaning to agreeing with God. For a person to confess has to behave as the person agreeing with God for what He has done for us.
Our conscience makes us ashamed of our sin and we don’t want others to see it. We even think we can hide it from God. Yet, this natural instinct to cover sin doesn’t benefit us. It prevents us from being real about our condition before God.
So we try to cover our sins in many ways:-
- Excuses and justifications.
- Keep Sins Secret
- Schemes to evade responsibilities.
Yes my friends even I remember myself when I lost the job in 2016 I was already on an ambitious plan with a big debt but everything landed up in financial loss due a sudden policy change by Indian government in December 2016.
Well our God takes care of everything and hence will help us but out of sinful pride I pretended before God and people that I have no need to confess, there was instead a thought to deceive.
But… but… Well as Bible says…
The path to receiving God’s mercy is to confess and repent, forsake our sin. This is the way to prosper spiritual and in life in general and receive God’s mercy.
“Blessed is he … whose transgression is covered” ……
