Evening Prayer – Feb. 17, 2020

Silence and Centering

“Be still, and know that I am God!- Psalm 46:10

PAUSE FOR 2 MINUTES OF SILENCE

Reading & Devotional:

If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. – I John 1:8-9 (NLT)

Sometimes it is so hard to deal with our inconsistencies. You know those times we stumble, do the things we shouldn’t and then kick ourselves. Thank God there is a better way to handle our “sins”. The secret is to stop when we have a moment of sanity. When the Holy Spirit convicts us, we need to confess to God and acknowledge our wrongdoing. “Father, I was wrong, forgive me!” Next, we need to repent, that is to make up our mind that with God’s grace we will stop. Finally, we need to renew our commitment and make steps toward correcting our behavior. Jude says that we can have confidence in having God’s help. He writes, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.” God is able to help us live in victory and freedom. The outcome is that we can walk in forgiveness and freedom. Yes, we have sinned, but God has forgiven and cleansed us from all wrongdoing. Today, let us live in true forgiveness and freedom.

Dear Father God, thank You for today and for being with me every step of the way. I pray that I may have a good nights rest and wake up refreshed in the morning to serve You, in Jesus name,
Amen
