Walk in freedom

Psalm 32:3-5 (HCSB)

When I kept silent, my bones became brittle
from my groaning all day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy on me;
my strength was drained
as in the summer’s heat. Selah
Then I acknowledged my sin to You
and did not conceal my iniquity.
I said,
“I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and You took away the guilt of my sin. Selah

Do you know the feeling that results when you keep silent before God by storing up sin in your heart?
There is a painful distance between you and God that can only be restored through repentance.

You might be feeling distant from God if there is something that you haven’t brought before Him. There will also be feelings of heaviness until it is released. You cannot hide anything from Him.

See what happens in this psalm as the sin is confessed and renounced?

There is no longer guilt for this sin! Oh, it is so simple. All we need to do is release it to God by asking for His forgiveness. Freedom will then come to us because Jesus has paid for it. Don’t carry guilt and shame by ignoring it any longer.

“He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” Proverbs 28:13 (NIV)
