“Then Judah said, What shall we say my LORD? What shall we speak? Or how shall we clear ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants; here we are, my lord’s slaves, both we and he also with whom the cup was found.”
What is important for us to see here is Judah just admits and confesses they’ve blown it. He doesn’t place blame, just takes responsibility!
“I acknowledge my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the LORD. And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.”
We live at a time when people, including ourselves, don’t confess or admit we are wrong! We don’t take responsibility for our mistakes, but, place the blame on someone else!
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
Today, let us simply just confess, be humble and move on, don’t get caught up in the blame game. There is enough of that going on around us!
“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
Have a blessed day confessing and talking to the LORD, let Him clear your name and cleanse you from all unrighteousness!
