Many a times we have ignored the sins that we commit on a daily basis. We think that God will understand our shortcomings. We think God is gracious enough to cover all those.
Yes God is gracious enough, God is abounding in love but there is something that happens every time we sin.
Every time we sin there is a separation between us and our God.
But your iniquities (immoral or unfair behavior) have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins (immoral act that is transgression of the divine law) have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
IN this verse it talks about two things iniquities and sins.
We always think of actions that we do and we say we haven’t sinned but juts look at this verse its not the actions that separates us but the unfair behavior that separates us from God.
Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; for I will not go up in your midst, because you are an obstinate (stubborn) people and I might destroy you on the way.
Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed(act that goes against the law) My covenant which I commanded them. And they have even taken some of the things under the ban and have both stolen and deceived. Moreover, they have also put them among their own things. ;Therefore the sons of Israel cannot stand before their enemies; they turn their backs before their enemies, for they have become accursed. I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy the things under the ban from your midst.
We think that our Sin separates but it is our iniquity or our behavior that separates us from God.
