DAILY VERSE

I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, “and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Psalms 32:5

 

DEVOTION

You know, all too often we sin and ask for forgiveness, yet we harbor an enormous amount of guilt. It’s as if God’s forgiveness isn’t enough, we feel that we deserve the guilt we bear as punishment. But God didn’t sacrifice His throne in heaven so that you would have to bear this. God banishes your sin as far as the east is from the west. We don’t have a license to sin, but when we ask for forgiveness, in Jesus’ words, “It is finished.”
