I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin. Psalm 38:18
What an amazing resolve David was having as he was bringing his sin to light. He was no longer covering it up but coming to a place of admitting his sin. He no longer wanted to run and hide, for he understood it could not be undone no matter how much he tried.
Confession is the first step in our journey with a loving Savior. It’s a road covered with mercy and grace and it is a voyage of freedom. No longer do we carry the weight of our sin when we confess it and leave it behind. David got to the place of extreme sorrow and could no longer allow it to be a part of his life, it was ever before him.
Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
Throughout this Psalm, we experienced a man in deep mourning over his sin. He understood the poverty of his spirit, do we? When we allow ourselves to divorce from sin, we will go through a time of great mourning because of the consequences in our life. By denying its power and hold in our life, it will only keep us entangled with its power. Jesus came to deliver us from sin so we no longer should toy with its power, it was defeated on the cross. We need help with the sin in our lives and turning toward Jesus will humble our pride and take sin back to where it came from.
