A Contrite Heart

Description

What guilt is eating at you? What unconfessed sin is keeping you from the fullness of God’s blessing? Cry out to God now. If He would forgive David, and He did, He will forgive you!

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. PSALM 51:17

There is pleasure in sin … for a season. Then the “aftertaste” leaves bitterness and guilt. David was called a man after God’s own heart, but he was also a sinner. When he saw his neighbor’s wife, Bathsheba, he sent for her. He slept with her, and Bathsheba became pregnant. To cover up the adultery, David ordered her husband to the front lines of battle, and he was killed.

Things went well for David — at first. He had pleasure in sin. But then his guilt ate at him until he poured out his confession to his heavenly Father. Psalm 51:3 – 4 records David’s cry to God: “For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned.” David’s sin was not just against Bathsheba or her husband or even himself. It was against God.

What guilt is eating at you? What unconfessed sin is keeping you from the fullness of God’s blessing? Cry out to God now. If He would forgive David, and He did, He will forgive you!
