“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,” Psalms 103: 1-3 NIV
Read: Psalms 103: 1-12
To GOD, sin is sin. As humans, many have a ranking order of sin. Do you believe that one sin is more wrong than another or another sin is not as bad as another?
If you used a human ranking of sin, what is the worst things you have thought, said or done? Would your list list include exaggerating the truth, lusting of another, cheating on your income tax return, broken promises of tithing, marital unfaithfulness, keeping the money when given too much change or those little ‘white’ lies that you live with daily?
What if you had to post these sins on a billboard with your name and photo on it in front of your house? Would you be more ashamed of your sins or would you be more troubled of others knowing the all the sins you have been hiding?
We can sometimes hide our sins from others, but never can we hide our sins from GOD. GOD knows everything about us.
Some will forgive you while others may be judgmental of all your past errors and will continue to condemn you seemingly forever. No matter what your sin, there is only one you can be sure who will forgive you absolutely for all eternity. GOD is the only one to absolutely forgive you.
Ask GOD to forgive you. GOD is the only one who can remove your ‘billboard of sins’.
Today’s prayer: “HEAVENLY FATHER, Thank you for forgiving me of all my mistakes, sinful thoughts and actions. As you have forgiven me, help me be more forgiving of others. Amen.”
