This week in Battle Drill devotionals, we focus on confession. It’s tough to admit our sins and entrust ourselves to God’s grace, but it is essential if we want to be God’s Future Builders.
Read Nehemiah 9:1-38. Do you find it easy to admit your failures? I know I don’t!
But sometimes, you reach a point in your life when you realise it’s not working. Life is just not as it should be. This is the point Nehemiah and the people of God had reached. Having been exiled from Jerusalem many years before and having returned to rebuild its walls, they realised just how far from God they had wandered.
So they confessed their sin and entrusted themselves to God’s grace. They were determined to put God back front and centre in their lives. They reminded themselves what he had done throughout their history and trusted that God’s unfailing covenant of love would mean he would save them once more.
There are times when we too must admit we have wandered far from God and his purposes for our lives. When we let go of our pride, our stubbornness and our fear, God moves in with his grace. Great is his faithfulness!
