Repent & Regain Your Strength

ExcellenceWhen I kept things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me. – Psalm 32:3 NCV

Confessed sin is so refreshing. I woke up one morning feeling free. I was actively disobedient over a repeat issue for a few months. Although my flesh was done, my mind was still tormented. I had not repented and given it over to Jesus. Once I said, “Yes Lord, I will do what you say”, I was released from the torment. I was able to move forward and complete the work with which Elohim has tasked me.

I read a devotional by Max Lucado that said whether a sin is too small to be mentioned or too big to be forgiven is not for us to decide. Our task is to be honest and surrender our worries to God. The German word for worry means “to strangle”. The Greek word means “to divide the mind”. Worry is a noose on the neck and a distraction of the mind. Don’t keep it to yourself. Tell God all about it and get your strength back.

About DestaIsJoy

Desta is an African Amharic name meaning "joy". My spiritual father and former pastor has twin daughters and one's middle name is Desta. I latched on to that name once I knew the meaning and use it in one of my e-mail addresses and for my website: where I promote my book and other writings. The joy of the Lord is my strength and for that I am truly grateful. For every mountain he has brought me over, for every trial he has seen me through and for every blessing, for this I give God praise!!!
