Devotional: Cleansed & Forgiven
Christian Women's Devotion on Forgiveness
We all can relate to this Psalm. It's a prayer of
genuine confession of sin, repentance & restoration.
David wrote this Psalm after Nathan confronted him
of his sin with Bathsheba. He didn't hesitate to
confess to God.
When we come before God, deeply sorry for what we
have done, He will forgive us. He will heal us and
restore us. We can once again walk with the Lord.
Sometimes when we sin, we can feel so unworthy and
unholy to come before God. But don't let that stop
you coming to receive God's forgiveness and
reconciliation back with Him. He is waiting and
longing for us to come to Him and confess our sins.
It's only by confessing our sins to God can He
forgive and cleanse us. We need to take the first
step toward God, by confessing. He knows all about
it anyway, so we needn't feel ashamed before Him.
He loves us more than a loving parent loves their
child. He will not judge us or condemn us, when we
confess to Him.
If you are struggling with coming to the Lord to
receive His forgiveness—remember He Loves You!

healing and restoration today!

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess
our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own
nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss
our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all
unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will
in purpose, thought, and action]. - 1 John 1:9 (AMPC)
Lord, I come and confess to you
The sins I've locked within,
Please heal me and forgive me
And cleanse me from all sin.
