Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty! When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Psalm 32:2-3 (NLT)
We are born with a sin nature. We will always have sin in our lives, no matter how hard we try to be on our best behavior. If we sin, we have the ability to go before God and ask for His forgiveness. We can live a life free from guilt. He is faithful to forgive us when we ask. When we try to live with our guilt, it can eat us up inside. Our lives can be filled with joy when we live in complete honesty before God.
Spend time today analyzing your life. Ask God if there are any areas of sin where you need to ask for forgiveness. Spend time in prayer asking for God’s forgiveness.
