Repent and Have Peace

God's Promise

God said, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins” (Isaiah 43:25). He also said, “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:11-12).

We all sin. I'm sure I do everyday, but God has provided the only solution for us to be restored to a relationship with Him. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:8-9).


When we repent we can truly enjoy a refreshing peace of mind not the turmoil and confusion that sometimes burdens us. This is a promise from God that cements our relationship with Him. If you can do this you will experience what Paul described in Phil 4:7 - “The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

Gold Stars
Nothing will keep you up at night more than knowing you are not on the right side of truth and love. When we were kids my Mom made a chart and hung it in the cupboard. She would give us stars for our deeds. Gold stars were the best. One day I found the box of stars. I remember sneaking several Gold stars and sticking them next to my name. It must have been 20 of them. Way more than even my perfect sister (Bonnie). Even Kenny had more than me before I found them. I shut the cupboard and ran off thinking Mom was gonna be really proud of me for all those Gold stars. 

After a few hours I went back and pulled them down. I thought that having those stars by my name would make me feel better but it didn't. I worried more about what I had done than I ever did before. It wasn't until I went back and pulled them off (repented) that I had peace.


You will never have peace in your life until you choose to repent. It's doesn't mean that you are making a promise to NEVER mess up again. It's just saying, Lord, I don't want to do the things I do or did. It's that simple. Ask God/receive= peace!
