I was sitting here thinking what It would be like to be in the presence of God. That day when we get to live our daily lives with Him. Then I realized that before it all, I would be held accountable for all my actions here on Earth. That thought overwhelmed me. Will I be ashamed, will I be proud, will I be humble.
We all are accountable for our actions, good or bad. We think that because we are not seen, we can do as we please. Well, because we have free will, yes, we can do what we please. However, God sees all and he will be our final judge.
I don’t want that day to come and be ashamed. I want that day to come and be proud of the good things I have done. For that reason, I keep my eyes on Him and ask for help when I need it. I want his blessing. I want to know that I am not stumbling around. I want to have a pure heart. I want to rid of sin.
Unfortunately, as person, I am not perfect. I will be accountable for all my actions. I will have to answer to the wrongs I have done. That I am not looking forward to. So, what can we do?
Confess Your Sins to God
Even though God knows all things, confess your sins to Him. Talk to him about what is in your heart. Let him know what you did wrong. Let Him hear your confession.
Repent of All Sin
After you have confessed, repent with a sincere heart. Truly, feel the shame of your sin and let Him know how bad you feel for such an act.
Ask For Forgiveness
After you repent, ask God to forgive your sin. Let it be washed away. Let it be gone from your life. Most of all, don’t do it again. Try hard to rid yourself of the thought, action, or act. Ask him to help you overcome your temptation to do it again.
18 Yes, I confess my wrongdoing, and I am concerned about my sins.
5 Then I confessed my sin; I no longer covered up my wrongdoing.
I said, “I will confess my rebellious acts to the Lord.”
And then you forgave my sins.
13 The one who covers his transgressions will not prosper,
but whoever confesses them and forsakes them will find mercy.
