“You are that man!” Nathan said to David.
I have often been there. So I know what it is like to have the Holy Spirit point out my hypocrisy and sin. I understand just how crushed David felt when Nathan confronted him with the murder of Uriah and his adultery with Bathsheba.
Oh, I may not have committed murder or adultery, but like David, I knew that I had sinned against the Lord. It sickened me to realize how easily I forgot all the Lord had done for me and how simple it was to fall into temptation and then into sin.
Today, I prayed:
Lord, I pray that we American Christians recognize our rebellion so that it haunts us day and night. Help us to realize we have sinned against You and have done what is evil in your sight. Then, give us a broken and repentant heart before You. (Based on Psalm 51:3-4, 17)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
