Seeds of Destiny 6th December 2020 Daily Devotional
Earlier, we saw some of the things to do in order to end with God in heaven – being born again, living in the consciousness of eternity and living in holiness.
Today, we shall consider yet another thing to do in order to end in eternity with God:
Repent and confess all sins promptly (1 John 1:7-9).
Beloved, temptation is normal as far as life on earth is concerned. So, don’t kill yourself because you were tempted. The issue is not the fall into the mud but lying down inside the mud after falling into it. If you fall into the mud, don’t live there, and don’t make falling into the mud a habit.
God desires a person with a contrite and sincere heart (Psalm 51:17). He does not delight in sending people to hell. So, be sincere with God when you fall into temptation and repent.
It may be true that you didn’t plan to tell a lie but maybe while talking, there was a pressure of speech and you exaggerated a fact. Maybe, you came in contact with some unhealthy sights and sounds unintentionally that took a hold on your mind, and as a result, you found yourself being lured into sinful habits. Maybe, you were engaged with some evil friends that led you into doing evil things. When you come back to your senses, all you should do is to go before God and say, “Oh Lord! I am sorry. Have mercy on me”.
So, refuse to sleep with guilt because you don’t know what will happen overnight; confess your sins promptly and receive forgiveness from God.
Remember This: Refuse to sleep with guilt because you don’t know what will happen overnight.
1. Refuse to sleep with sin or guilt.
2. Don’t excuse your sins but confess them promptly to God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I refuse to excuse my sins. I confess them to You. I ask for the grace to maintain purity and uprightness of life always, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: A dog’s shoulder blades are unattached to the rest of the skeleton to allow greater flexibility for running. No wonder they are fast-running animals.
