Confronted to Confess




David took the wife of another man, and to cover up the sin, he arranged for her husband to be killed in battle. Then it was business as usual for David__ until the prophet of the Lord confronted him. Have you been ignoring your confrontation? Do you need to confront a relative or friend who does not realize how he or she has sinned against God? Or are you living like David did.. business as usual.. ? Sometimes it takes a special confrontation to bring us to confession and then healing can start.


Whatever it takes, we need to come clean, confess, and ask for a new begining.  When we do we will experience God’s mercy!!  That confrontation led David to write Psalm 51, a confession of his sins.  “I know ” I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.  Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight.”  The psalm is also a plea for mercy:  “Have mercy on me, O God.”  David also asks the Lord to create in him a pure heart and a steadfast spirit to keep him from sinning.  Perhaps, like David, you have carried on as if nothing has happened.  It’s time to confess…
