But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. (1 John 1:9 NLT)
1:9 Christians do not understand that God wants to forgive us. He allowed his beloved Son to die just so he could offer us pardon. When we come to Christ, he forgives all the sins we have committed or will ever commit. We don’t need to confess the sins of the past all over again, and we don’t need to fear that God will reject us if we don’t keep our slate perfectly clean. Of course we should continue to confess our sins, but not because failure to do so will make us lose our salvation. Our relationship with Christ is secure. Instead, we should confess so that we can enjoy maximum fellowship and joy with him.
True confession also involves a commitment not to continue in sin. We wouldn’t be genuinely confessing our sins to God if we planned to commit them again and just wanted temporary forgiveness. We should also pray for strength to defeat temptation the next time we face it.
It is human nature to hide our sins or overlook our mistakes. But it is hard to learn from a mistake you don’t acknowledge making. And what good is a mistake if it doesn’t teach you something? To learn from an error you need to admit it, confess it, analyze it, and make adjustments so that it doesn’t happen again. Everybody makes mistakes, but only fools repeat them.(Tyndale study Bible)
In your darkest hour, have you called on God? Yes I am sure you have. Just like the comment says we need to learn from our mistakes. Not always easy. As humans, we don’t want to admit to our failures. When we fail we are quick to seek solution or excuse. Sadly, often we just make excuse.Solution takes effort, you have to think about it, and to most, that’s work. That’s why I seek solution in God and his Manuel the Bible. He is the solution, power and my inspiration.
You don’t make a sale! Have you taken the time to analyze why? Once you have analyzed , try improve at the next opportunity. Can you imagine, if we apply this principle to all aspects of our lives. Let it become second nature to admit, analyze and rectify. They key is, rectify and learn.
I would just like to say, to believe is to say I do. Declare it.
Admit and rectify.
