Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Deal With the Issue
Pastor Rodney was ministering
today and I present his edited sermon. He began reading Psalms 51.
Psalms 51:1-3 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness:
according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my
transgressions.Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my
I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
David admits his sin, and
cries for mercy; because he knows God is full of compassion.
How often do we try to
justify our actions. David did something
totally different.He openly repented
and asked for his guilt to be washed away, because he was conscious of his
rebellion and he asked for mercy.
God’s love and mercy is
We need to walk out
forgiveness.We attempt to break away, and
end up suffering depression and no peace.
It is up to us to step
forward because God’s arms are always outstretched and ready to receive us.
Psalms 51:4 Against thee, you only, have I sinned, and done this
evil in thy sight: that you might be justified when you speak, and be clear
when you judge.
God is blameless when He
judges.When we say, we are okay, but we
are not, we are lying to God not just to our brethren.
Don’t walk around with sin in
our life and give excuses.Pride keeps
us from owning up.We hide our sin from
others, but we cannot hide from God.
Before we can help others, we
must deal with the sin in our personal life.Only then are we able to pray with others needing deliverance and help
them out of their bondage.All sin must
be laid at the cross and left there.
God is ready to forgive, but
are you ready to submit to God’s way?
There is no excuse.
No you were not born that
way.No it is not the fault of your
parents.It is not because of
circumstances in your life or your situation.The responsibility is yours alone.
You must come to the cross of
Jesus and ask forgiveness.The reward of
peace that He gives is worth it.
God gives us the opportunity
to begin again, but it is up to us to request and receive His forgiveness.
God then makes us worthy.
Psalms 51:6Behold, you desire
truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part you shall make me to know
within you desire integrity in your inner self and to be taught from the Holy
Spirit, understanding and wisdom.
about yourself.What are you
hiding?What are you holding back?Are you ready to humbly come before a Holy
God and ask forgiveness?
you ready to walk out repentance and a turning away from that which holds you
so, then rejoice that you are forgiven and move forward without doubting into
the joy of our Salvation.
We are justified by the Blood of the Lamb and by the
Work of the Holy Spirit.
