Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - September 19

Bitter or Blessed?

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Psalm 32:1, nkjv

Your heavenly Father has been waiting for you to come home to Him, waiting for you to confess your sin of resentment and rebellion, waiting to celebrate the joy and love and pleasure He wants you to have in relationship with Him. Don’t make excuses; don’t rationalize your bitterness. Go to God; ask Him to cleanse you of your sin. Ask Him to uproot your bitterness. Invite Him into your life to take control of everything, including past memories of abandonment or abuse or adultery, present circumstances of injury or injustice, and future dreams and disappointments.

Follow the example of the psalmist, who wrote, “I will confess my transgression to the Lord” (Ps. 32:5, niv).

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”

Wouldn’t you rather be blessed than bitter?

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
