John 8:32 (NIV)
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
There once was a boy named Billy. His grandfather had a sling shot. One day he asked his grandfather if he would teach him how to shoot the sling shot.
His grandfather took into the back woods and began to teach the boy. The grandfather told Billy to go and practice for a while. Billy was in the woods , alone, and kept missing everything he shot at.
Billy, on his way back to the house, saw his grandfather's duck and decided to try his aim with the sling shot once more. Billy took aim and shot at the duck and hit his mark!! The duck fell over dead!
Billy took the duck, buried it in the ground. As he looked up he saw his sister, sally standing there watching him attempting to hide his deeds. Sally and Billy went back into their grandparents house. As they did so, Billy told Sally not to say anything. Sally said, sure, no problem. The kids grandfather told Sally to go into the kitchen and help her grandmother wash the dishes. Sally said, "Billy is the best dish washer in the family, he would love to wash the dishes. Remember the duck?' Billy washed the dishes that night.
The next day Billy's grandfather said, "Billy lets go fishing today. Sally, your grandmother needs your help around the house, so stay here and help her out."
Sally responded," Billy hates fishing but loves house work. Isn't that right Billy?"
Billy thought for a minute and decided to confess. Much to his surprise, his grandfather said, "I know you killed the duck. I saw you through the window. I also saw your sister standing there watching you. I just wanted to know how long you would let yourself be your sister’s slave."
How long will you let yourself be Satan's slave because of unconfessed sin?? Confess your sin to God, He already knows, He simply wants you to confess it to Him and ask for His help.
He will help you rid yourself of Satan's grip on your life. Just ask Him.
Dear Lord, thank You that You area forgiving God. Help us not hold our sins inside, but instead ask Your forgiveness for them so that we can be free of them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
