Daily Devotion - Episode 49 - Dealing With Hidden Sin

By Devotable

“He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” Proverbs 28:13Sin can be a lot like mold.By the time we see sin appear in our lives or in the lives of others, we can be sure its roots have already spread inward and multiplied. Actions are merely a reflection of what lives in the heart. Murder begins in our hearts and minds when we refuse to love our neighbour as ourselves. It may not be detectable in the early stages, but as the spores of sin grow and flourish, it will make itself known.Sin thrives in a heart that is receptive to lies and easily deceived; it will feed off unforgiveness and selfishness, and with the right encouragement, will flourish into death.“Each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.” James 1:14This is why it is so important to root out the sin in our lives as soon as we are aware of its presence. Proverbs 28:13 tells us that, “He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”Notice there are two calls to action: we must confess our sin and renounce them.Hidden sins have a way of spreading and invading our life when left unattended. If the Holy Spirit is revealing to you an area in your life where you need to confess and repent, don't delay. Our God is gracious and compassionate. He longs to heal and forgive. But He will not invade your life without permission; He stands at the door and knocks. Will you invite Him in?“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.” Ephesians 1:7-8
