You, Lord, convict us of our sin – “You are the man” (2 Samuel 12:7). We confess our sin to You – “I have sinned against the Lord” (2 Samuel 12:13). Conviction of sin always comes before confession of sin. How could we confess that we are sinners if You do not show us that we are sinners? You forgive our sin – “the Lord has taken away your sin” (2 Samuel 12:13). You lead us in the way of Your salvation – “washed … anointed …. changed he went into the house of the Lord and worshipped” (2 Samuel 12:20). What blessing comes to those who confess their sin. You lead us to confess our sin. From there, You lead us into Your forgiveness. You lead us into the fullness of Your salvation. Thank You, Lord.
