“Hidden Faults and Deliberate Sins”
How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. Keep Your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin. Psalm 19:12-13
The Prophet Jeremiah says: “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” King David, basically says the same in his Psalm, concerning his HIDDEN FAULTS and DELIBERATE SINS. He says; “How can I know ALL the sins LURKING in my HEART?” The Holy Word of God is like a mirror, exposing us to our own sins, whether they are HIDDEN FAULTS, those sins committed by us, which we are ignorant of, those that we don’t realize or KNOW we’ve committed, they are called “sins of ignorance”, or DELIBERATE SINS, those we have done out of our own FREE WILL, sins that are committed with the intention of COMMITTING them. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to bring our HEARTS under CONVICTION, and when we are CONFESSING our KNOWN SINS, we SHOULD CONFESS those HIDDEN FAULTS, so we, like King David, SHOULD ask for God’s CLEASING from the HIDDEN FAULTS also.
David had a REAL FEAR of being CONTROLLED by his sins, his request to the Almighty God, was to KEEP him AWAY from the DELIBERATE SINS, and to NOT let them have CONTROL over him. David knew that then and ONLY then could he be FREE from GUILT and INNOCENT of GREAT SIN. God told Jeremiah, “But I, the LORD, search ALL HEARTS and EXAMINE SECRET MOTIVES. I give ALL people their due rewards, ACCORDING to what their actions deserve.” So, it’s ALWAYS GOOD to include ALL HIDDEN FAULTS, in your time of CONFESSION. So, you too, might be able to say as David did: “Don’t let the SINS CONTROL me. Then I will be FREE of GUILT and INNOCENT of GREAT SIN.”
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are in REBELLION against Him, and your DESTINY is at RISK of spending an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there. In order to be FREE from GUILT and INNOCENT of GREAT SINS, which will bring CONDEMNATION upon you, unless you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful life-style, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESS, both HIDDEN FAULTS and DELIBERATE SINS to God, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and be FREE from GUILT and INNOCENT of GREAT SIN. And spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s WAITING, and COMING SOON!!!
