Today God says:
  "If you confess your sins, I will forgive you".

He promises me:
  "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness". (1 John 1:9)

My response to the word:
  God is so good to me. He promises to forgive me of my sins when I confess them to Him. He also promises to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. God's forgiveness in my life is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hate. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness. I am so thankful that God forgives me and cleanses me.

My prayer:
  Lord, I confess my sins to you: ……………………………………………………………………………………………………… Thank you for forgiving me and cleansing me from all unrighteousness.

Today's scriptures:
  "I made my sins known to you, and I did not cover up my guilt. I decided to confess them to you, O Lord. Then you forgave all my sins". (Ps. 32:5 GW) "Whoever covers over his sins does not prosper. Whoever confesses and abandons them receives compassion". (Prov. 28:13 GW) "So admit your sins to each other, and pray for each other so that you may be healed". (James 5:16 GW)
 

Quote for today:
God doesn't seek for golden vessels, and does not ask for silver ones, but He must have clean ones. (D L Moody)
 

On this day:
On 6th November 1977 in Toccoa Falls, GA, the Barnes Lake Dam burst, following heavy rains, and the resulting flood destroyed the Christian and Missionary Alliance campus of Toccoa Falls Bible Institute. Thirty-eight students and instructors were also killed in the tragedy. On 6th November 1932, Eugene Peterson was born in East Stanwood, Washington.
