Psalms 62:8 – Be honest with our faithful God.

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.  http://www.bible.is/ENGESV/Ps/62/8

One thing we can surely count on is that God is unfailingly faithful, and it is to Him that we can run when we want to hide from sin. He is our refuge!

I’m going to be redundant with a “Christianism,” but it’s true: God sees everything. He knows what you are going through and He sees every temptation and failure. If we want to begin to flee sin we need to be honest above all – especially in our pleadings with God. Don’t allow yourself to “hide” any details of your sins from Him. Pornography is one of the most secretive sins we men face. When we are in a pit of self-loathing from failure, or when we think we are being tempted beyond our control, if we can’t confess every horrid detail of our sins to Him who has the power to free us, how in the world are we going to be able to be honest with those we want to hold us accountable? HONESTY IS KEY.

“Pour out your heart before him.”

About Jeremiah

I am a God-fearing, wife-doting, father of 3 adorably wonderful small children. I find my identity in who Christ has called me to be: a family man, musician, and redeemed escapee of pornographic addiction. I find a new freedom and solace in writing about my experiences and insights the Lord has given me. You will find I have much joy in life, and that as a result, I may inject corny humor and the ironic quip from time-to-time. I just pray that Christ will be glorified through me here, one way or another, by what He gives me to say.
