Do you struggle to believe that God has forgiven you of particular sins? If so, you have another sin to confess—unbelief. Go to God in prayer right now, asking Him to forgive you for failing to trust His Word. Ask that He would help you rest in His forgiveness and that He would cleanse your conscience of the troubling memory of past sins.
After years of walking as Christians, it can be easy for us to take the mercy and grace of God for granted. Returning again to our sin and repenting for offending the Lord can help us stay aware of His goodness, love, grace, and mercy. We should be reflecting daily on the ways in which we still fall short of God’s glory and asking for forgiveness. Then, we should confess our sins to God and throw ourselves on His sure mercy in Christ Jesus.
