1 John 1: 8-10
God forgives us of our sins when we accept Jesus as our Lord. This position never changes, but as we go though life and continue to sin due to our human condition, we feel the burden of those sins. God will always forgive and always expect us to do better.
Many times we feel confident in knowing what God's plan for us is when truly we are lucky if we have a basic grasp of a tiny part of God's timeless, interwoven, multi-faceted plan for humankind from creation throughout eternity. We need to begin to understand the view from God's perspective as He looks at us within His grand plan.
