Despairing of sin? Feel unforgiven?

Has it ever seemed hopeless? You sinned. Again. And it feels numb to ask God for forgiveness. Again.

You must take that thought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ and confess your sins to your merciful God. He is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

Read Psalm 32:2. Go ahead – I’ll wait. Now read it again and insert your name into it and pray for the faith you need to believe this glorious truth!

There are many other promises like this, that remind us what our good God stands ready to do, if we would obey His Word, confess our sins, and repent.

What is one or two of your favorite passages that teach us how God regards us when we confess our sins and repent from them, towards Him – our gracious Father – how about it? What passages have brought you truth, comforting your despairing heart?
