Do not hide your sins before God

by | Jul 31, 2017

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Happy is the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.” Proverbs 28: 13-14
God does not want you to live a hypocritical life of living in sin and not confessing them before HIM and making quality decision not to continue in sin.
“For I am closely watching you, and I see every sin. You cannot hope to hide from me.  And I will punish you doubly for all your sins because you have defiled my land with your detestable idols and filled it up with all your evil deeds.”  Jeremiah 16:17-18
Do not hide your sin before God .HE is all knowing. Once you make a mistake be honest with yourself and God Do not try to cover your sin with another sin. As the saying goes you will need another lie to cover a lie and before you know it the deceitful life will continue to multiply.
“God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you; 
even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back; 
I’m never out of your sight. You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too— your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful  I can’t take it all in!” Psalm 139: 1-6
As you confess your sin to God, repent and sincerely depend on the Holy Spirit to enable you live a life of victory and you gradually become an overcomer.
Don’t be discouraged by many hypocrites around you who will take you before the Lord and openly accuse you of your sins. Jesus said “ Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7
Sometimes we always point to someone else sins, it is easier to see sin in our brother or sister than in us .It is even easier to see the sins in the world, and not in us. “There’s something self-righteous and hypocritical within a lot of us that cries out for the preacher to “let those other people have it!”
Don’t hide your sin before God.
Don’t give up because of the holier than thou attitude around you.
You too can live your Christian life victoriously.
