Do we take God at His word? When you ask for forgiveness, do you believe He hears you and forgives you? If you re-confess the same sin, are you struggling with believing you’ve been forgiven. You have to totally break yourself from the sin and truly repent. Then you will live in the freedom of forgiveness.
“He prays to God and finds favor with him,
he sees God’s face and shouts for joy;
he is restored by God to his righteous state.”
