He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
This a very powerful scripture so I thought I would write a blog about it today.
So many people are trying to cover up their sins nowadays but God's word says that if we do that we will not prosper. So many things going on in this world and lot of things going on in the Church. It really saddens me to hear of some of the things that are going on and have been going on in the Church. Some ministries have fallen apart and they have not prospered but that is God's word being fulfilled. No prosperity for those who are covering sin, trying to pretend that it is not happening. God is dividing the wheat and the tares so we better make sure which side we are on.
The second part of this verse says that who ever confesses AND forsakes them [sin] SHALL HAVE MERCY. There is a reward now for repenting and forsaking sin. We shall have the mercy of God on us and we SHALL prosper. This is a very powerful word, a word of correction and a word of prosperity. Let us all examine ourselves and make sure that we are where we need to be. May God's mercy engulf us today as we forsake our sin and get on that narrow path with our Lord.
