The Healing Begins……
I have had this word in my heart hidden like a fire deep within lately! It has burned in me and I am weary of holding it in. I can just imagine the heavens singing every time a heart turns to the Lord in repentance and submission. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” When I first discovered this scripture years ago, I kind of winced and it made me nervous, but what I realized was God never despises a broken, contrite heart before Him (Psalm 51). He delights in us coming clean before Him. He knows our thoughts and sees the sin as we commit it anyway.
Today Abba and I are dining at a new little Biscuit shoppe in town and I am indulging in a yummy breakfast sandwich. Are you tired of hearing about all of my food adventures yet? Lol He is speaking to me about His church and His people. There is no better time my sisters to turn from sin and repent. Whatever it is, He has oodles of grace to freely give. Please don’t be afraid as freedom is on the other side of confession.
Are you aware of any active sin in your life? Are you holding onto something done years ago that keeps you in bondage? LET IT go. Today is a day to let freedom ring in your life and we can actually do this together. In a moment, I am going to guide you through a prayer of repentance and together we will let the past go. You are safe here. Your secret is safe with me and God loves you infinitely. He and I both want you to be liberated. Let us spend some time in prayer and confession.
Dear Jesus~You are my resting place and my refuge. You shelter me under your wings. I am so grateful for your presence in my life and today is a new day with new mercies. I desire to be free for your glory and my good. Father I confess and repent for any sins knowingly or unknowingly committed. Wash me clean, Lord. I come boldly before your throne of grace and ask that you would dip me in your cleansing waters. Your healing waters. I am so sorry for committing sin before you and grieving your heart. I am so thankful that a broken, contrite heart you will not despise. I am broken and contrite in heart and mind. Free me. Liberate me now In Jesus name. Amen!
