Sweet, Sweet Repentance

46
This morning, I had the amazing privilege of coming before the Lord in repentance with a loved one. We had begun a difficult conversation that quickly precipitated into a battle ground of hurts, fears, and unhealed, old wounds. The Lord watched silently as we delivered yet more bruises to one another, allowing us to wear ourselves out with our own flesh.

When all was said and done, and we had grown too weary to continue our battle in the flesh, the Lord stepped in and brought us both to repentance. But He did not merely convict us both of how we had treated one another. He stripped us both naked and chastened us as He showed us the very sins we had held onto for dear life in our hearts – for decades.

Long before we knew one another, we had fallen into these sins and never been fully, if at all, delivered from them. For we had not confessed, not repented, not received God’s forgiveness, and not applied the Word of God to our lives that through the power of the Holy Ghost we would learn to walk free from these ancient chains of bondage. As we confessed to one another, as we confessed to our Lord, He extended His mercy upon us and reminded me of oh how sweet is repentance. But how can I call repentance sweet? Easily.

The chastening of the Lord brings forth the searing of the dying of the human flesh as pride is stripped away and godly sorrow comes in its place, and yet what comes as the end result is the sweet love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness of the Lord God almighty for those who place our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. To God be all glory!

Job 5:17 KJV  “Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 
Job 5:18  For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.”


Jas 4:6  “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”


Jas 5:16  “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
