A Cry For Repentance

Humbled at Your feet I come, unworthy of Your grace am I
I kneel at my Savior's feet, my sin so deep, my sin so high
All that is within me is turmoil and strife
Yet in thee oh Lord, I will humble myself

Your conviction is heavy, condemnation draws near
Pride comes to me, but Lord I will not fear
Come be my Savior, draw me from within
Out of my darkness, deliver me from sin

Sin, I will never be free of, but Lord, You give the grace
Please cleanse me Lord, that I may see Your face
Your face I do not deserve, Your grace I should not receive
Lord, please have mercy on me, because Your Spirit I have grieved

Lord change my heart, for I crave Your love
Make me as white as snow, as white and pure as a dove
As I humble myself, Lord be my guide, please dear Lord, never leave my side
I need you more than words can say; I need you each and every moment of the day

Acts 17:30 - In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.

All throughout the Bible, the Lord gives us examples of what repentance is. It means to weep, wail and tear your hair out. In the Old Testament times, this is exactly what they did. They would even tear off the clothes they had on their backs and cover themselves with sackcloth. Repentance was also done through fasting, weeping and mourning. Many cried out on their faces before God. This was and should be our way of humbling ourselves before the Lord.

The Lord not only tells us to repent, but commands us to do so, that we may return to Him.

Repentance is something that is not seen very often in the house of God. It is very sad to see that many of the hearts of man have hardened. Repentance is rare and confessing sin is even rarer. The Lord tells us to humble ourselves, which means to be rid of all pride and come before the Father. Confess the sin before man for in doing so, you will break pride's hold and be free. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Anyone you confess to has done what you have or worse. Don't worry about what they think, get yourself right with God.

We will never be completely free from the burden of sin until the day the Lord comes for His bride, but the Lord tells us through His Living Word, that we are to repent and change. We all know when we have sinned. We know when we have stolen from our brothers and sisters. We know when we have lied. We know when we have made accusations and judgments against someone. We know when we have committed adultery against our husbands/wives/God.

Be encouraged dear brothers and sisters and know that repentance is not a bad thing, but a great way of drawing near to our Father. It is laying down flesh and running from pride that Christ might rule in this life we live. It is an indication that you want Christ to be your only influence. It shows that you are working out your salvation with fear and trembling before your Maker. Not because you're afraid of Him, but because you love Him. He loved us that much to send His one and only Son to take on the sins of the entire world. The Lord will not turn you aside if your repentance is genuine and sincere.
