Do we ever suffer grief or guilt or shame because we’ve done something we think is horribly sinful, offensive or unforgivable? Do we think it’s so bad we choose to shove it down inside us? Do we avoid sharing with anyone because we fear rejection? Don’t we sometimes deceive ourselves thinking we’re the only one who’s ever felt this way?
So we throw down the gauntlet and hide behind this cop out: “You don’t know what I’ve done.”
Don’t we sometimes avoid God for the same reason? We’re so ashamed of our sin we fear God’s rejection or wrath?
Then He will say, “And I forgive you. I love you. Confess it to me. Now come to me and rest in My presence and let Me renew a steadfast spirit within you.”
He’ll take us where He wants us to be. If we believe Him and allow Him.
