TITLE: THE POWER OF CONFESSION

Just this week we are made keenly aware of the importance of the click of the cameras. Every detail that any of us perform or speak may be captured, and there is no denying the facts once the deed is recorded.

We do not walk about our daily lives with an awareness of our every action and word becoming a permanent record, certainly not in our homes; but it has always been the fact. We will give an account of every idle word and every deed we have done, and there will be no denying it because it is stored.

I was taught this by my mother. There has always been a level of comfort for me in the knowledge of this fact because she advised me that God sees everything, both the bad and the good. She said He would reward me for the good things I did and said. The Bible agrees with that information.

The balance of information in her advisement has been a monitor for me all through my life. Rather than feeling that God is One Who only wants to "catch" me doing wrong, I fully understand that He also is watching the good that I do. Further it influences me favorably when it comes time to confess the wrong I have done. I realize that God already knows all about it, and He won't be shocked.

This fact is a truth for me and also for you. "Every man shall give an account of every idle word spoken and the deeds done in the body," So says God. Everything will be recorded for us to view and we will not be able to deny it. If there are good deeds, or bad deeds we have forgotten having done, those also will be there too.

God watches me, I'm glad to know it; for if I am in danger, or have a need,
or if I am doing a goodly deed, He will see, or if I have sinned and need to confess, the Lord is aware and His mercy forgets.

The only things that will not be in my Life Film when I stand at the Seat of Judgment before Him, are the things I have confessed to Him, because what I confess and forsake, He forgets.

The first click that started the camera was at our birth. The camera is rolling and we can never hide from its view.

I like that, don't you?
