Trusting God When Life Knocks You Down
It’s Good for Us
Step 1: Confess it “We must agree with God about our sin,” writes Giesbrecht. “Blunt honesty can be difficult. It takes a little time to sort out injured feelings. It is essential before we can be healed of an unforgiving spirit. Consider Romans 2:4: ‘Or do you think lightly of the riches of his kingdom and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?’ We show God how we respond to His loving kindness through a sincere desire to get rid of the grudge. The result: in good conscience we admit our sin and humbly repent.
