Dealing With Sin

Category:Lent Devotions

Psalm 51:10-12

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.

When I have to deal with my daily sinful ways it is usually defined as, denial, making excuses or I get frustrated with myself or people around me.

Looking at other peoples imperfections instead of reflecting on my own first is a weakness of mine, of which I ask for forgiveness in my daily prayers.

In Psalm scripture, David provides great examples of how to respond to sin in a calm and healthy manner. He is humble, he doesn’t deny, make excuses and get upset with himself or with others. God does not make us the same and therefore does not judge us.

He trusts fully in God to make everything right again by cleansing, restoring faith and giving an obedient spirit.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your sacrifice in freeing me from my sins. It is by your Love and Grace that I am saved. You are my Shepherd and in your name I trust. Amen.
