Repent & Confess Your Sin


We all have done something we should not have done. Yet, when confronted with our action, how do we respond?

Exodus 32:30
‘You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin’

He did not deny his wrong but merely explained it away.

But look at what Aaron said to Moses:

Exodus 32:22-24
“You know how prone these people are to evil. Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.’ So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!”

It would be so much better to simply confess our wrongdoing and repent.

David repented when confronted with his sin with Bathsheba and God forgave him.

Repentance restores our relationship with the Lord but does not remove the consequences of our actions.

When we do the wrong thing, we should confess our sin and seek His forgiveness.

Pray: Lord, please forgive me for trying to justify my sins rather than repent of them. Help me to be quick to confess and seek Your forgiveness every day.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.

Are You Grieving A Loss?

Many of us have lost much lately.

Millions are without a job.

Others have lost children to disease.

Millions have lost children to abortion, SIDS, and miscarriage.

Others have been divorced, abused, raped or your trust has been destroyed.

In other words, you may be grieving a loss. But, here is the good news:

ISAIAH 53:4-5 says:

“4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes, we are healed.”

When you think of this, let GOD be there for you in the midst of your grief, adversity, pain or brokenness.

Believe not every spirit

Many believers are falling away in these last days. The reason? They have believed the lie of false, demonic spirits.

In I John  4, we learn how to discern false spirits and to know the truth!

I John 4:1-4:
1. Beloved,  believe not every Spirit but try the spirits whether they are of God;  because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2. Here by know ye the Spirit of God:  every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.

3. And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God and this is the spirit of antichrist.

4. Ye are of God little children and have overcome them and here’s why because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

Therefore, you can test every Spirit knowing the markings of a cult from a true church.

When you see ISIS and ANTIFA hating Christians and tearing down crosses, burning churches, raping women, killing innocent men, women, and children, discern that this is the antichrist spirit alive and well is is not the spirit of the living God.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.

The law of the Lord is perfect

David reminders in Psalm 19 that the law which refers to God’s ten commandments is perfect.

Verses 7-10 says:
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul;

The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;

The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;

9 the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;

The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea than much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Trust God’s Commandments. Live by his word and live free pure and enlightened.

Learn God’s Commandments by studying God’s word so you can live free!

Are You Wise in Your Own Eyes?

Proverbs 3:5-7:
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil.

As you see, if you trust man’s wisdom you will fail, but if you trust God’s wisdom, you will be blessed.

Allow God to direct your steps. Acknowledge Him today as you pray.

Watch Him direct your steps and lead you in the path you should go, away from evil.

Don’t walk in man’s wisdom. Run in God’s wisdom straight to heaven!

Pray; Jesus I trust in you with all my heart. I acknowledge that you are all wisdom. Thus, direct my steps O God.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.

Who covers your sin?

Proverbs 28:13

He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

Compare this with:

Psalm 32:1
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Either you hide to cover your own sin, which always harms you or you choose to allow God to cover your sins, which blesses you.

Either cover your sins with your pride or greed or self-justification or cover them with the Blood of the Lamb that washes you white as snow.

If you want God to cover your sins, Ask Jesus into your heart, receive the Holy Spirit and be washed in the blood of the Lamb.

PRAY: Jesus forgive me, I am a sinner. Wash me clean as I call upon Your Holy Name. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit as I confess with my mouth You Jesus are my Lord and Savior.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my Friend.

Do you need counseling?

Proverbs 8:14:
Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom;
I am understanding, I have strength.

How does God counsel you? He gives every believer the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT.

John 16:7-15 tells us that when the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all truth.

Step one: Simply receive the Holy Spirit who will empower your life with internal counsel.

Proverbs 20:5
Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water,
but a man of understanding will draw it out.

Find someone to help you dig into your deep hidden places so you can be healed.

Are you compromising your faith?


Whether there is a benefit to honesty and integrity, authentic believers need to take a stand for the truth and for their values.

In John 2, Jesus, stood boldly against the religious leaders of His day because they had turned God’s house into a flea market.

He braided a whip, strode through the temple courtyard, lashed at the money changers and merchants with the whip, and overturned their tables. As He did so, He rebuked them for their wicked practices.

1 Corinthians 15:58
“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain,

Have you ever made moral compromises to fit in or to get ahead? Perhaps, you justified looking at porn or having sex with a neighbor.

if you did, you realized you may have be compromised your faith. Be real: take a moment to repent and come back to God.

Prayer: Lord, strengthen my faith as I obey You and lead me with integrity. Forgive me, Lord, and cover over any of my wrongdoings with Your grace.

And this is my Word of Hope for you, my Friend.

Do You Pray Confidently?

Higher our expectations, the greater our disappointment when they are not met? Whether our unrealistic expectations are placed on other people, on our own abilities, or on specific situations, we will always experience discouragement.

But when our expectations are placed in the promises of God, we will never be disappointed. 


In Luke 2:25-35, we read about Simeon, who placed his expectations on God’s faithfulness. He had spent his lifetime anticipating the arrival of the Messiah. Because God had told him he would personally see the Christ, Simeon knew that Jesus would be born in his lifetime. After years of waiting and finally getting to hold Jesus in his arms:


He prayed, “‘Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of your people Israel’” (Luke 2:29-32).


Simeon’s prayer was a confident prayer.  He knew God would remain faithful.

Simeon never gave up on God, and God did not disappoint him.


What a contrast to the expectations we place on this world!

Instead of placing hope in others, place your hope in God, who always delivers on His promises.


Prayer: God, help me to place my hope on You, not in this world. I know that You will never disappoint me. 

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
