Greetings in the Name of Jesus!
Why do we keep doing the same things over and over knowing that it is not pleasing to our Lord and Savior. I thank God for his mercy. I think we all fall short of the glory of God. But I don’t want to continue doing the things I know that are not pleasing to God. How do we get out of this mess. I realize that I myself can’t get out of this but the Lord will help me get through all things. It may be minute to someone else, but anything we do against his word is a sin. I thank GOd for his word in 1 John 1:8-9. He gives us the opportunity to get it right, his word is teaching us what to do when we sin. Don’t try to hide your sin and lie about it. Be honest with God, God already knows what we have done. He is waiting for us to come clean with him. As the scripture reads:
1 John 1:8-9
IF we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Now I pray O Father in the name of Jesus, that you lead me and all those who read this to know that we can come to you no matter how bad we think we have done. We are not going to get cleansed ourselves. I do believe that we can be cleaned from all of unrighteousness if we trust God enough to be honest with him concerning our sins. His wword say if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. Then the word goes on to tell us what to do:
If we confess our sins, that means, we need to come out in the open with God and tell him Lord I have done this evil in your sight. I acknowledge my transgressions and my sin is ever before me, against thee, thee only have I sinned and done this evil in thou sight. God says in his word that he is faithful ( meaning he is going to honor his word, he is going to be loyal and stand on what is written)
God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. Glory to God! He is faithful and just to forgive us.Not only to forgive us but to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I thank you Jesus for your word that cleanses us. People it is going to take the word of God to cleanse us. We are going to have to stay prayerful, continue in his word by meditating in it day and night, searching the scriptures for in them we think we have eternal life, for they are they which testify of me. Not only reading and praying in his word, but obeying his word.
Let us come to God always for that spiritual cleansing we need daily. We may say we can do it ourselves but we can’t. What WE can do is GO to God confessing our transgressions and believe on him to clean us up. I believe that he will and he has! Praise the Lord! It is the word that cleanses us.
Psalm 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word.
I encourage everyone to continue in his word. Spend time in his word, meditate in his law day and night, obeyi his word, living his word, apply his word to our lives. We can be cleansed if we Go to God and allow and believe him to cleanse us from all of our unrighteousness.
