Concealing Sin

Proverbs 28:13
He who conceals his sin does not prosper,
but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.

I've been in a position lately where a few folks have thought that by doing or saying certain false things against me, they may somehow change my future or destiny. Unfortunate for them, much of this "concealed" sin has been quickly brought to light through no efforts of my own. As a matter of fact, the hole they thought they were digging for me has actually become their second home.

A previous pastor of mine would say, "If the Lord has a blessing on your life, the devil in hell can't stop it." While others sit by and plot and scheme to block your blessing, remember that what God has for you, absolutely no one on this green earth can take away! Its not for us to fight to bring these haters to light. Their "concealed" sin will find them out and they will instead hinder themselves from prospering.

If you've found yourself being that hater, there's still time to turn things around! Confess your sin, repent and allow God to bless you with what's in store for you. Trust me - He has enough to go around for everyone!

Seek Wisdom, Find Wealth and Be Blessed!

I have also been on the receiving end of "concealed sin" in which parties felt they where throwing stumbling stones onto my path. I often find myself overwhelmed with emotion, playing the victim on such occasions, but I have to remind myself that He lights my path and directs my steps so that my foot does not slip and there is NO ONE that can change that.

"If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us...Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us a prey to their teeth." -- Psalms 124 2 & 6
