Proverbs 28 — Mission City Challenge

PROV 28_13_mercy

People who conceal their sins will not prosper,
    but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy. ~ Proverbs 28:13

Great word!! What does it mean to prosper?

PROSPER (verb)
The verb PROSPER has 2 senses:

1. grow stronger
2. gain in wealth

When you prosper it affects so many aspects of your life. You health, your family, your love, your friendships and relationships, your career, school, your mind, your knowledge, your wisdom and the list goes on. Wealth is only part of it although most of us think of gaining wealth when we think of prosper.

So if you are not prospering in your life, you are doing the opposite! When you have hidden sin in your life it tears you apart from the inside out. First of all your relationship with God is broken and then it trickles down from there…..your health goes bad, little by little, addictions form, friendships become shallow, family becomes distant….. many people die with such great sorrow and guilt. You become angry and bitter and most of the time do not even realize it. It is no way to live a life. It is selfish and unfair to all those around you.

The solution is quite simple… CONFESS your sins and begin healing… there is nothing, I mean NOTHING like a clean heart!! God’s mercy brings HEALTH to all the area’s that hidden sin destroys. The only way to live a life… clean, pure and whole. Full of the LOVE of GOD

Now go out and have an EPIC day today!!
