Nothing Between

Isa 59:2  But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Sin is a separator. God will not condone nor countenance sin in our lives. Though He loves us immeasurably, He will not fellowship with us if we have unconfessed sin in our lives.

Sin builds a wall that our confession and His forgiveness obliterate. Prior to our acknowledgement of sin, we cannot expect God's blessings on our life or His smile upon our way. It doesn't mean that we are not still His child, but it means that His child will sail some rough seas until they get right and have their sin dealt with by God's remission through the blood of Jesus.

If you are living with known sin in your life: pride, rebellion against God, the forsaking of His house, bitterness or unforgiveness against another, a mind consumed by carnal thoughts, or any other wickedness, allow the Holy Spirit to convict you of your wrong doing, tell the Lord that you have sinned (He already knows, but He wants you to know) and ask Him to bathe you in forgiveness.

Then, the wall that sin has erected will come down and your sweet fellowship with the Father will be restored.

Make sure there is nothing between your soul and the Savior today.
