Everyday Repentance King David
King David was a great man who committed a great sin and he paid the consequences but he also received forgiveness because he was repentant. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. In Psalm 51, David’s repentance speech, we see that God desires truth in our inner beings. Make me therefore to know wisdom in my inmost heart,” David pleads with God. That means if we want to receive God’s blessings, we must be honest with Him about our sins. Until we face the truth of our sins we can’t truly repent. Real repentance means we’re sorry enough to ask for forgiveness with the willingness to change. We need to be sorry for the hurt we’ve caused another instead of making excuses for our sin.
David became a man after God’s own heart because he confessed his sin. Repentance brings forgiveness and freedom which always leads to healing and restoration, anytime we confess…everyday.
