People who conceal their sins will not prosper,
but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.
So, as we begin this new year, we normally make resolutions or goals. We often jot down some sort of goal in which we want to be successful. When we make this year goals, we don’t realize how our sin can affects our prosperity.
The bite states that those who conceal (try to hide) their sin will not prosper. Ok, for my ladies who love makeup, I don’t wear makeup, but I have seen enough Youtube videos to know that you need concealer (to hide all the spots, redness, and blemishes you don’t want anyone to see). But, after the day is done you wash the concealer from your face and it reveals those spots again. When you keep trying to hide your sin, it just reveals itself over again and again.
Sister, you can’t cover up your sin and think God does not see.
Psalm 32:3 When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long.
- We can’t refuse to confess our mess in this new year.
- God wants us to confess and turn from our sin, so that we may succeed.
1 John 1:9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
He will be faithful to forgive your flaws.
Psalms 32:5 Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
God wants to take whatever you are hiding today away! He is your hiding place. He will protect and surround you in this new year.
Confess for Success
