Always Open

S. O. A. P.

Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!


Psalm 38:18

I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin.


Here is probably the most powerful man on the planet at the time, King David, admitting that not only is he a sinner but he’s troubled by it. And he puts it out to a watching world for all humanity to read.


At this stage in my life, I’ve had a full life to experience and observe how people handle their own personal challenges. I must admit I’m always happy when I run into people who refuse to hide their own failures. It’s important that you understand that the idea of hanging all your dirty laundry out in front of everyone in a cavalier way is not what I’m proposing. No! Rather, the idea that a man or a woman can be “Always Open” before God is refreshing. They do not advertise an air of perfection or condescending man-made holiness. Instead, on a regular basis, they say … “Lord I’m a sinner and it bothers me, and I need You again today to show me grace.” That’s the person that JESUS is always standing by to help. Why? Because they are “Always Open!”


Dear Jesus,

Thank You today that when I do air my sin before You I’ve never known You to condemn me, but rather Your forgiveness has been my reward. Help me stay … “Always Open.” Amen
