“Then Reuben returned to the pit, and indeed Joseph was not in the pit; and he tore his clothes. And he returned to his brothers and said, The lad is no more; and I, where shall I go?”
Often times when we blow it, instead of just confessing that we blew it we plot to cover up! In the next verses they kill a goat and dip Josephs coat in it’s blood and tell Jacob a wild animal got him!
“But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the LORD; and be sure your sin will find you out.” Numbers 32:23
We can do all the plotting, planning and covering up we want, remember the LORD see’s all, hears all and know’s all! So the best thing we can do is just confess and tell the truth!
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
Today don’t hide and cover, confess and be uncovered before the LORD! So He can cover you in His righteousness and wash your sins in His blood! Have a blessed day in Him!
