Confess our Sins

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. —Psalm 32:1

Hiding our sins is a terrible thing to do.

King David was an example of this.
The surface of his life looked fine.
But his interior life was really bad.
After his sins of adultery and murder, David thought he had successfully hidden his treacherous acts (2 Sam. 11–12).
But God’s intense conviction after Nathan’s confrontation caused him to realize that denying the presence of sin in his life weakened the foundation of his spiritual life.
To prevent his spiritual state from worsening, David acknowledged his sin to God in repentance (Psalm 32:5).
As a result, God covered David’s sin and gave him the joy of forgiveness.

We too will experience God’s grace when we confess our sins to Him.
God will completely forgive and cover our sin.
Let us confess our habitual sins, our secret addictions, and our hidden vulnerabilities before God.
It is when we uncover our sins in repentance that God will cover them.
Forgive me O God!  And cover all my sins.
