I Must Confess
You know that old proverbial saying, “Confession is good for the soul”? Well, there is A LOT of truth in that. Especially when it comes to the times when you are waiting for something good to happen for you. We are told in the Word of God that, “if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Have you ever been in a position where you had been expecting breakthrough or perhaps just looking for your prayers to be answered? Satan like to visit in those times, with the hopes of injecting some suggestions of discouragement and you not being deserving of anything good. He often relies heavily on you becoming downtrodden from your past mistakes.
The key to overcoming such antics is taking the time to be transparent, have those private conversations and confessional moments with the Father. Why? It is because transparency is what makes you capable of producing results, while confession is what makes you free. Once confession has been made, God no longer holds you liable, but instead forgives and cleanses you from the errors and labeling of your past. You have been made right—deserving—and are now in a favorable position to receive all the good that is due you! You just have to know it and embrace it each day. Remove yourself from having a sin-filled, guilty conscience and make it a habit to conversate with the Lord…after all, those blessings with your name on it, He thinks you deserve it!
