NO MORE GUILT   

Read: Psalm 32

Key Verse: “Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord’-and You forgave the guilt of my sin.” - Psalm 32:5

The first step in the restoration of God is honesty. There can be no more cover-ups, excuses, or rationalizing. Healing comes after the revealing. David made a clear decision to confess all of his sins to the Lord. Do you ever get tired from trying to hide your rebellion and pretend as though everything is fine?

God responds to your humility is a positive way. Not only does God forgive your sins, but He also takes away your guilt. Will you allow God to take away your shame? Some people insist on being hard on themselves, even though God grants a pardon. Why extend punishment and suffering that God does not want you to have? Receive His grace today that covers your rebellion and your guilt.
