Psalm 32 and verse 5: “I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord’ and You forgave the iniquity of my sin.”
It is true, my friend, that sin separates us from both the power and the peace that God says should be ours. Willfully doing wrong when God’s Word shows us what is right opens the floodgates of our hearts and our minds to the cares, the fears, and the worries that have no legitimate right to take away the inner peace of those of us who belong to God.
Confession brings us back to right relationship with God again. Right relationship pushes the power of trouble back where its torment can no longer reach us. The Bible calls it an incredible thing, actually-a peace that passes understanding!
It’s time to pray.
