Confess and repent

“Ham, the father of Kena`an (Canaan), saw his father shamefully exposed, went out and told his two brothers.”
Genesis 9:22 CJB

This verse is usually misquoted to mean don’t expose Gods annointed, but this isn’t what’s happening here! Noah sinned and got drunk, but Ham was excited and way to eager to tell on his father! The wording here is Ham took joy in seeing his father blow it, something we see people today doing all the time! Taking joy in other people’s mistakes!

“He who conceals his sins will not succeed; he who confesses and abandons them will gain mercy.”
Proverbs 28:13 CJB

Often times when a person is happy to see another person fall, it is usually concealing their own failures or sins! We, as believers, need to confess and repent of our sins, then pray for those who are in sin! God will deal with them!

“But if you will not do this, then you have sinned against Adonai, and you must understand that your sin will find you out.”
Numbers 32:23 CJB

Today, know we can’t get away with anything. God sees all and knows all, but realize no one else is getting away with anything either! So let’s be glad, knowing when we confess and repent, God forgives!
Have a blessed day knowing that fact!
Shabbat Shalom!
