Confess to the Lord

Psalm 31:1-5

1 How joyful is the one
whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered!

2 How joyful is the man
the Lord does not charge with sin
and in whose spirit is no deceit!
3 When I kept silent, my bones became brittle
from my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night Your hand was heavy on me;
my strength was drained
as in the summer’s heat. Selah

5 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.

Let us not forget to confess our sins to the Lord. It is easy to forget that we need to confess to Him. We carry our sins around in our hearts like a weight around our neck. Our Lord does not want us to do that. He doesn't want us to squander His loving kindness, His mercy, and His forgiveness.

Confess and ask for forgiveness and the Lord will renew your heart.
