Have you ever tried to cover up your sin? Living in cover-up mode is an extremely miserable and fearful way to live. After committing adultery and killing a man, King David said, “When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted … Your hand was heavy upon me” (Psalm 32:3-4). David was totally miserable in his cover-up. God was crushing the life out of him because of his unwillingness to repent. Listen, when you mess up, you fess up. It is that plain and simple. Are you living a life of cover-up? David was sick because of his unconfessed sin, but he found the answer. He said, “I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord’; and You forgave the guilt of my sin” (Psalm 32:5). God will forgive your sin and remove all the guilt if you will uncover, confess, and repent. Now that’s REAL HOPE.
