Be thankful

“So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods which were in their hands, and the earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the terebinth tree which was by Shechem.”

Genesis 35:4

There is so much we can glean from this verse! First, we can ask ourselves what do we need to remove from our lives? Once we identify the things that keep and distract us from the LORD, we need to remove them and bury them, never going back to them!

“Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.”

Proverbs 4:27

Secondly, once we remove the things that distract us from the LORD, causing us to sin, we get to confess and bury them at the cross (the tree) and be forgiven by the LORD!

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

1 John 1:9

The LORD’S forgiveness is really something to be thankful for!

“As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.”

Psalm 103:12

Today, let us confess our sins, bury them at the cross and rejoice in the fact we are saved! Have a blessed day in Him.
