What’s on your heart? Have you made a mistake and you are really down? You don’t want to talk about because you don’t know what others will think? Are you worried about something? Concerned about making ends meet? Worried about your job or your kids?
Whatever is on your heart, God knows. Doesn’t matter how bad it is; God knows and God forgives.
Let me repeat that; God knows our hearts and God forgives.
Proverbs 15:11 says, “Even Death and Destruction hold no secrets from the Lord. How much more does he know the human heart!”
So God knows our hearts. Don’t be afraid to confess your sins. It’s not like God doesn’t know them. Confess them and experience God’s forgiveness.
A little boy visiting his grandparents was given his first slingshot. He practiced in the woods, but he could never hit his target.
As he came back to Grandma’s back yard, he spied her pet duck. On an impulse he took aim and let fly. The stone hit, and the duck fell dead.
The boy panicked. Desperately he hid the dead duck in the wood pile, only to look up and see his sister watching. Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.
After lunch that day, Grandma said, “Sally, let’s wash the dishes.” But Sally said, “Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen today. Didn’t you Johnny?” And she whispered to him, “Remember the duck!” So Johnny did the dishes.
Later, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing. Grandma said, “I’m sorry, but I need Sally to help me make supper.” Sally smiled and said, “That’s all taken care of. Johnny wants to do it.” Again she whispered, “Remember the duck.” Johnny stayed while Sally went fishing.
After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s, finally he couldn’t stand it. He confessed to Grandma that he’d killed the duck.
“I know, Johnny,” she said, giving him a hug. “I was standing at the window and saw the whole thing. Because I love you, I forgave you. But I wondered how long you would let Sally make a slave of you.”
Don’t let Satan make a slave of you. Experience God’s forgiveness.
