Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


Magnificent Relief
by Charles R. Swindoll

I acknowledged my sin to You . . . 
and You forgave the guilt of my sin.
Psalm 32:5

Like a cool, cleansing shower on a hot, sweaty day, God's forgiveness washes away not only sins but their tormenting guilt. 

God goes into the depths of our inner being and provides that magnificent relief that only He can bring: PEACE. . . .

If you are harboring some sin—if you are keeping hidden a few secret regions of wrong—don't expect to enjoy freedom from guilt, child of God. 

There is an unspoken axiom threaded through Scripture: secret sin cannot coexist with inner peace. 

Peace returns only when our sins are fully confessed and forsaken. 

Few grinds are more galling than the grind of an unforgiven conscience. It's awful! 

And few joys are more relieving than having our sins forgiven. It's wonderful
