The Gift of Shame (2 Samuel 11)

King David saw the love of God and yet believed that he could get away with adultery and murder. The resounding effects of his sin continued for years until God finally worked it through David's soul: “Should I win the favor of Yahweh, He will bring me back…but should He say, I take no pleasure in you, then here I am, let Him deal with me as He likes” (2 Samuel 15:25-27).

Will you let God show you the full enormity of your crimes? If you allow God to take you to this great place of crushing, God's promise is that He will be close to you: “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” (Psalms 51:17).
