God Is SO Ready To Forgive Us

We have all made mistakes. Everyone of us. And when we make mistakes, although the mistake itself is tough enough, it can be tougher when we have to tell someone we have made a mistake. I can remember in the last year making a mistake on a car lot I dreaded telling my manager. When I did he said, “It’s ok…. you’re not going to make one mistake that we “we” (other employees) haven’t already made.”
David said, “O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help” (Psalm 86:5). I love that verse! David says… “you are…. so ready to forgive.” The idea is that God is looking over us and sees the mistakes we’ve made yet, God is ready to forgive us.. if we ask.
But that concept isn’t how many people think of God. A person can do something and be very embarrassed by it and may hang onto it for a while… because they are afraid God wont forgive. But God does forgive.
Listen… if there is anything in your heart that has not been confessed, don’t be afraid to confess it. The Bible says, “If we confess our sins, Jesus is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness”(I John 1:9).
God is ready to forgive us… but we must ask… Is there something you have been hanging on to that you need to confess? God is ready to forgive.
