Have you noticed how we often try to fix or deal with sin on our own? We attempt to clean things up, sort them out and make them right—then bring them to God. Perhaps we fear that God will respond to our sin as people would: with anger, disgust or rejection. But that’s not God. He longs to be gracious to us. He is eager to show compassion. Skip the frenzied activity; instead, come to him in repentance and rest, in quietness and trust. You will be amazed at the blessings he heaps on those who wait for him.
