Confession To God Restores

by Hazel Straub

When we confess our sins to God, he is faithful and forgives us because Christ paid for them. Confession brings restoration to our relationship with God, without blockages. We are his beloved children and no longer defiled by sin because of the blood of Christ. This brings us great joy.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. (1 John 1:9 NLT)

  2. Amen! I often counsel folks with this truth, stressing our absolute need to bring everything before God (who already knows it anyway!). Far too many are living under self-imposed condemnation that they’re particular sin(s) are somehow beyond God’s ability to forgive.
    I love this passage because it is all about restoration; God purifies from all unrighteousness the humble heart that will express sorrow over sin.
    Blessings,

    • Yes,it is true that confessing our sins and allowing him to cleanse us from all unrighteous, cleanses us. The sacrifice of Jesus and his blood is enough to cleanse us from every sin. Restoration is so important ant. Then we can spend time in the Father’s presence, which changes us from within. Chuck, thank you for your insightful comment.

  3. For the person who cannot confess his/her sins the verse in John’s epistle comes to mind: if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves ….

    • Peter, yes it is so true that one is deceiving themselves about not having sin, if we do not confess our sins. Thank you for your insightful comment.

  5. It removes the walls of separation between us and our Heavenly Father. Sin, isolation, and separation are barriers between us and His glorious light. May He help us to break down these high places and completely surrender to Him.

  6. Thank you for this! I really need to learn to confess directly to God, rather than just saying ‘Oh He knows about what I did already.’

    • Emmie, you are welcome! Confessing our sins directly to God, turning away from them, brings us to restoration. There is nothing like a clean slate! Blessings!
