Regular Confessing

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Psalm 38:1-22

In addition to being drawn to the way David so powerfully describes the impact of unconfessed sin, I also like the example he provides for us of candidly talking with God and asking Him for forgiveness when we have sinned. God knows everything about us--EVERYTHING--our actions, our thoughts, our words. Our sin and the consequences that follow are not a surprise to Him ("my sighing is not hidden from you" (vs. 9)). So the sooner we confess and ask for forgiveness, the better.

"I confess my iniquity; I am sorry for my sin" (vs. 18).

Is it your practice to regularly seek forgiveness from God? What's your experience been with asking God for forgiveness immediately after an offense versus waiting until sometime later? What are the benefits of keeping a short account with God when it comes to asking for forgiveness? Tami
