All left speechless at the glory everywhere, for the King was standing there

“…All left speechless at the glory everywhere, for the King was standing there…”

There was a time in my life that I could not bring myself to confess my sin for fear of humiliation and rejection. Shame kept me speechless. The sad thing about my speechless state was that the Enemy and his lies constantly bombarded my spiritual ears to the point of deafness. The reality was that I dealt with my shame the moment I became honest and confessed. It was in that moment of sheer honesty with God that freedom came to me. That encounter with the Truth had indeed set me free. When I confessed my sin and confessed my lack of ability to save myself and then declared that I needed Christ to save me I was again reduced to my speechless state. This time the muteness was not as a result of shame…but of utter and deep gratitude for the wave upon wave of love that kept rolling over my heart from the heart of my Maker. The sheer weight of His presence – His glory – had so filled my heart that no words could quite convey the depth of gratitude I felt toward Him.

Take time today to confess your hidden sin and gain a clear conscience…and then bask in the speechless state of cleansing and gratitude.
My soul {waits} in silence for God only;
From Him is my salvation.
Psalm 62:1 NASB
