“Achan replied, ‘It is true! I have sinned against the Lord, the God of Israel. This is what I have done.” (Joshua 7:20)
Guilt is a terrible burden.
Fear of consequences can be all consuming.
There is something cleansing, right, and proper about owning up and facing the consequences of receiving forgiveness.
God will always forgive even when we can’t forgive ourselves. His forgiveness knows no bounds.
There is nothing you have done, are doing, or will do that is beyond the forgiveness of God. He has already provided for all the forgiveness you will need.
While men may not forgive, God will always, always forgive.
Put your confidence in Him, and let Him deal with the consequences.
Your conscience will be clean, and God will deal with what happens. You may well pay a human price, but your heart will be free.
