You acted in secret, but I will do this before all Israel and in broad daylight.
David responded to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.”(2 Samuel 12:11-12)
When faced with the truth of what we’ve done, it can be a wake up call. We might have rationalized choices along the way, one after another that seemed to fit and make sense. But then we face the truth.
If we are honest and wise, we will respond with immediate humility, reverence, and submission to the truth instead of rationalizing or blaming.
There will still be consequences, but God is able to immediately forgive us and help us move on.
Perhaps you can faintly hear a wake-up call right now. Tune out everything else. Listen. Wake up. Change.
