Your unconfessed sins will prevent God from moving on your behalf. The sad thing about it is that we are ready to do something that is life threatening for something we are supposed to have the victory over, we may even find ourselves defeated, busted and disgusted. That’s why it’s good to know the people you hang out with and who is associated with you, because you may end up in or on the path of God’s wrath towards them. Remember the rain falls on the just and the unjust alike (Matthew 5:45), the difference is God will deliver the righteous.
As David said in Psalm 37:25, “He’s been young and old and have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” But when someone sins, God will not move on their behalf as we see in Joshua 7:1. You can’t be unfaithful to God in any area of your life that’s why our motto is Romans 12:1-2 and our example is Jesus (John 14:6). Total obedience to God and His commands, instructions, judgements and statutes is what God requires from us in order for Him to answer our prayers.
Joshua and the children of Israel were so accustomed to victory, that defeat came as a surprise and drove fear into them, but Joshua chapter 7 verse 6 shows that they knew who their God was, and when defeat came they went to Him, because they knew something had to be wrong.
To defeat the enemy as Joshua 7:12b – 13 shows us, we have to destroy and get rid of anyone or anything that God does not like and sanctify ourselves. So for your prayers to be answered, confession and sanctification must take place.
No matter what, as Numbers 32:23 says, Be sure your sins will not find you out.
Confession ensures forgiveness. Hidden sins done in secret will eventually be exposed and cause great damage and defeats.
