Seeking Forgiveness

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 24:10-17

Our sinful choices (actions, words, thoughts) impede our relationship with God. So in order to have and maintain a full and vibrant relationship with God, seeking forgiveness needs to be a regular course of action for each of us.

David understood the need to keep a short account with God. So as soon as his feels convicted about his actions in numbering the people, he seeks God to candidly and openly confess his sin and ask for forgiveness. It's an example we would all be wise to follow.

Is it your practice to keep a short account with God when it comes to asking for forgiveness? Why is this important? How does talking candidly and opening with God about your sinful choices help strengthen your relationship with Him? Tami

Tami, Thank you for these very personal studies to help us to draw closer to God our Heavenly Father!

When we seek forgiveness from God we KNOW beforehand that He is gracious and merciful to forgive us and cleanse us all sins, but we also know that our sins have consequences and we have the Heavenly Father to help us grow as He helps us to not yield to our temptations.
Oh, that I could answer yes, but I start this very day to keep a short accounts with God as a daily/hourly life. I need to seek Him like David did when he prayed search me O Lord and see if there be any wicked way in me. I am sure that I have not only known sins, but sins that I am trying to give an excuse for,but I need the Lord to bring it to light and I confess it promptly.
Waiting a long time to confess sins is not good,I am going to forget to ask for sins that I did that I can honestly say,that I had forgotten.

Talking to God, gives me the boost to stay way from the urge or desire to sin and if they do, I can ask God to help me right then.

Talking to God about your actions and thought is necessary in the process of forgiveness because we don't want to find ourselves depending on us to believe that we can overcome the things that displeases God on our own we have to depend on God alone , also seeking God approval requires us coming to him to get our slate clean so that he can be in the leader in our lives
