Have you had those moments when the Holy Spirit convicts you of your sin? And it’s one of those sins that you know is a sin, and have confessed it, but only on the surface. And the Holy Spirit convicts you of it again when he opens your eyes to see the gravity of it in a different light. And the light bulb comes on…oh the effects of my sin is awful. God showed it to me at prayer meeting tonight.

I am grateful for Psalm 32:3-5

When I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night your hand was heavy on me;

my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.

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.

The bitterness, the anger, the discontent, the excuses…it has a physical effect. A part of the joy in the Lord is missing when we have unconfessed sin.

Thank you God, that when I confess my sins to you, you are faithful and just to forgive me, only by the precious blood of Jesus.
