Job 31:33 ” If I have concealed my sin as men do, by hiding my guilt in my heart…”

Because of Adam, as human beings we all have the same commonality…a corrupt human nature. Thus we’ve all become very adept at hiding and covering our sins. We think they are well hidden…buried deep in our hearts where no one can see them…that is no one but God. Proverbs 28:13 says, He who conceals his sins doesn’t prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” So this path to God’s mercy must first start with a willingness to acknowledge our hidden sin, followed by confession to God, which then leads to authentic repentance – not just lip service or some emotional altar call – but true remorse and regret, taking full responsibility and accountability for our actions. This will then lead to restoration and a right relationship with God…which is what He wanted in the first place. This process is shown beautifully in Psalm 32:5, ” I acknowledged my sin to You and didn’t cover my iniquity. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord – and You forgave the guilt of my sin.’ ”
