Forgiving Relationship

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 24:1-25; 1 Chronicles 21:1-17

Whether we're a new follower of Christ or someone like David who has faithfully followed God for years and years, we're still susceptible to sinning. When we react and respond based on our feelings and attitudes (pride, anger, jealousy, hurt) rather than seeking God's direction, the outcome won't be a good one. So when we stumble and fall into sin (and we all will), the best thing for us to do when we recognize that we've sinned, is to confess our thinking, words, and actions and get our life back on track with God as soon as possible.

Is looking back at each day (or further) and asking for forgiveness a regular part of your prayers? How does seeking God's forgiveness impact your relationship with Him? Tami

Asking for forgiveness and receiving it is a "reset". God loves me. When I read about David I see that the quicker I can see my sin and repent the better it all works out. I am reminded of what a loving God we serve each time I confess and receive forgiveness. Truly receiving the forgiveness that God so freely gives is the key.

Keeping a short account with God is imperative to our ongoing growth.
