Honesty with God

Yes, God already knows your every thought, emotion, and struggle, but He wants you to come to Him and admit your struggles and give Him your burdens. Let this be a daily action.

God is greater than everything you currently face and anything you will ever go through.

"You need to be honest," says Dr. Norman Peart. "You need to come and let the Lord know what’s already there. You may often try to be "religious" or "Christian"—and come with a facade. In reality you’re doing yourself a great disservice because He wants to reach that deepest point in your life, and it only comes when you open your life and show Him what He already knows. Just let it come, let it flow. He can deal with it."

God desires your sincere heart. What a comfort to know that you do not have to pretend with God.

"In Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God" (2 Corinthians 2:17).

Lord of all, I want to be honest with You—no more pretending, no more holding it all in. Amen.
