READ Proverbs 28
“Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.” Proverbs 28:13
Nobody sets out to fail, but everybody has at least once. Everybody wants to prosper, but not everybody does.
The Good News is that when we fail (because we will) God extends mercy to us. If you were really honest with yourself, is there an area in your life you are just failing at?
Stop hiding your sin and talk to somebody about it. Ask for help and follow Jesus instead. Is this easy? No, it will require some guts, but it is worth the mercy that God promises you.
Have a conversation with somebody (Small Group Leader, friend, etc), follow Jesus, and mercy is all yours. Sounds good right?
PRAY and ask God to point out anything in your life that you need to stop or start doing. Listen for Him, and then do what he says.
