In What Manner as Believers Should we Confess our Sins to God?

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
(Hebrews 4:16)

The wonderful thing about our relationship with God as believers is that we know that He knows everything about us and He knows us alot better than what we do!

And secondly we can tell God everything that is on our hearts.

Psalm 62:8
Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

When we go and seek advice from a friend or seek counsel from someone that we know about a particular matter we are sometimes very cautious about what we say because we may be concerned that maybe they will abuse the information that we tell them and disclose it to someone else or perhaps we think that they are not capable of understanding.

But when we go the the Lord in prayer we can pour out our hearts before Him and we dont have to try to come to God with fancy language or with a carefully worked out plan of any kind. We can just pour it out and sometimes we may be so grief stricken or so burdened with our sins that all we can do is meekly come too the Lord and plead for help in our time of trouble.

1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

God knows all things and that includes all of our troubles.

And so we come boldly to the throne of grace as we read in Hebrews 4 because Christ is our great High Priest and we dont have to hold back anything, we can just pour it out and if we think we’re really not expressing our feelings adequately enough we can confess this to God too.

Romans 8:26
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
