CONFESSION:  acknowledgment or disclosure of sin or sinfulness.

I love the words found in James 5:16,  “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

When you confess and get your sin out in to open, Satan can no longer hold that secret over you to cause guilt, or shame in your life.  No doubt he will try to bring it up again and again, your defence is Matthew 16:23, “Get behind me, Satan!  You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” I like to say, “you do not have power over me anymore!”

After confession comes repentance…

A Place at the Table – Day 7

RESIST TEMPTATION:

  1. to withstand, strive against, or oppose enticement or allurement.
  2. to withstand the action or effect of enticement or allurement.
  3. to refrain or abstain from, especially with difficulty or reluctance to evil.

Yesterday was a day that temptation got the best of me.  I gave into my sinful desires and I over indulged.

I am so thankful that my God is a forgiving God.  He will forgive me a sinner, but He will still judge my sin.

GRATITUDE:  the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful.

I love the saying, “attitude of gratitude” and some times we quickly forget about all the luxuries we have here in Canada as mentioned yesterday.

Instead of trying to rewrite what everyone else has said about gratitude please see this post http://www.dumblittleman.com/2010/07/how-to-adopt-attitude-of-gratitude.html which sums it up very nicely.
