Faithful and Just

IMarch 2013 Picture IPhone 323f we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9

Confession is good for the soul. Along our journey, we all have things that we need to confess and turn over to the Savior.  This is true if your walk with the Lord is on Day 1 or Day 10,000.  We have things that we can share with God about what we have done that is not consistent with His word.  We can be thankful that His Grace and Mercy allows us to recognize the sin and to confess it to Him.  We may think that our mental list of shortcomings is too much to give to the Savior but He is God.  He is our Heavenly Father.  He can take our confessed sin and provide forgiveness that provides healing and deliverance for our souls.  Our sin is a heavy burden that creates distance between us and our Savior.  We can give it to Him today.  Our passage is a reminder that if we confess our sins, He is willing, He is able and He is faithful to forgive us.  His forgiveness puts us in right relationship with Him to walk in a place of confidence and trust as His children.

Dear God –

Thank you for another day.  I confess that I have sinned.  I am sorry for my sins.  I ask for forgiveness for the things in my life that don’t reflect your will for me.  I accept Your Son Jesus in my heart today as my Lord and Savior.  My desire is to live for you and to follow your Word.  I am thankful for the blessing of salvation.  I love you Lord and I am thankful for this new day in You.

In Jesus Name.  Amen
