Purified
Psalm 51:3-6
3 Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your mercy. According to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions.

4 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.

5 For I know my transgressions and my sin is ever before me.

6 Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are just when You speak, and blameless when You judge.
Reflect:
In order to truly know who God is and to hear from Him, we need to acknowledge our sins before Him. When David wrote this Psalm, he was repenting for the sins of deception, adultery, and murder. While we may not have committed those sins in particular, we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s standard of righteousness.
When David realized that he had unconfessed sin in his life, He ran towards God because he understood who God was and the depth of His mercy. This is what God wants for us! When we realize we have unconfessed sins in our life, we can turn to God and He will take them away. Like a loving father taking back a wayward child, He will always be there to lovingly lead us to repentance and restoration. When we repent and ask for forgiveness, He does!

Prayer:
Lord, I want to live free of the condemnation that comes with sin. What sins in my life have I not repented for? Help me to see them and give them to You.
In Yeshua’s name, amen.
