Sin has consequences. Every sin, all the time. God is merciful, but our sin sets things in motion. Notice the litany of David about what his sins had done in Psalm 38.
Sin matters. It has physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual consequences. It may be that what you are suffering right now is purely a result of your sin.
If it is, there is a remedy in Christ. If we confess our sins He is “faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). It’s the better choice with the better result.
Father, search me. Turn the light on in my soul and show me any sin lurking there. Give me grace to see it, agree with you about it, and turn from my ways. Remind me of the manifold consequences of unresolved sin.
