I am here with a bonus chat podcast episode. I do these from time to time when I am out and about and something pops into my spirit that I want to share. I hop on my voice memo app on my iPhone and go to town. Today, I am sharing something that has been on my heart for a few weeks and that is the notion that you can’t out pray unconfessed sin.
Now, I am not saying that you can’t make a mistake and ask God to forgive you. What I am saying is you can’t plant a seed with one hand and pull it up with the other hand. For example, you can be praying to God for a godly man and at the same time be running to psychics asking for future knowlege about finding a man or what he will be like. Why? Because the bible tells us that seeking mediums, fortune tellers, psychics, and the like is a sin and sin blocks initimacy and breakthrough in your life.
Another example of this would be praying for a good man but everytime you get around your friends all that ever comes out of your mouth is all men are dogs. The bible tells us that life and death are in the tonge and what we speak we will eat the fruit of.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” – Proverbs 18:21
HOW TO COME AGAINST SIN…
It is so important to pray daily and ask God to forgive us of our sins KNOWN and UNKNOWN. We must also ask for Him to create in us a CLEAN heart and renew our spirits. Additionally, we need to seek Him for hidden sin that we are blind to. The words of God tells us that we could be held responsible for sins that we didn’t commit but our ancenstories did.
God “visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and fourth generation ” – Exodus 34:7
WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY
We are called to be the salt of the world. The salt that helps to heal, protect, and preserve. It is so damaging to be praying outwardly saying that we love God but at the same time have our hands in the VERY things as world (cursing, gossiping, lying, horoscopes, yoga, etc). Thinking that these things are innocent and make us relatable. No, these things make us a hypocrite is God’s eyes. We are supposed to be a light upon a hill.
I encourage you to take some time to seek God. Ask Him to forgive you of the sins that you know you have commited. Then, ask Him to reveal unknown sins that have been commited by you or those before you. God says that if we seek Him and ASK that He will give. This lets us know that !He if faithful to reveal the unconfessed sin in our lives so we can get it right!
After you pray, take a deep breath and just LISTEN! To often we pray and ask God for an answer and as soon as the last word rolls off our lips we have moved on to the next task instead of being still to hear or see what God is trying to reveal to us!
