So very often, we feel the most insecure when we fail (of course). And we feel “let down” by God when we ask Him for help and perceive that He didn’t help us in whatever we asked of Him. However, do we consider that, perhaps, there might be some unconfessed sin that is stopping His power from reaching us? Acts 2:28 and 2:41 are examples.
Questions for further thought:
1. Are you lacking some security in God you need today?
2. Is there any unconfessed sin you need to give to Him first?
Challenge: Make no mistake, God wants us to be secure in His power and love. But He also wants us to confess sin to Him because He wants nothing separating us from Him when He generously and graciously gives of His power to smother us in His love and concern. So, get that sin to Him and confess it, and then bask securely in His perfect love and will for you.
