Thought For Today -July 28
Blessed is he who's sin is forgiven!
"Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, who's sin is covered." Psalm 32: 1.
We know when we have done wrong, we know when we are trying to hide from God. We know our own shortcomings. They bear heavy upon us, and make us weary, sad, and fearful.
When I kept silence, that is, when I refused to judge myself and admit my sins and shortcomings: "My bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me....". Psalm 32: 3-4.
Being convicted of sin, and estranged from God our father is not pleasant. I acknowledged my sin, and agreed with God concerning my condition and received pardon and forgiveness through Christ my Lord. Then I can know that God is my hiding place. He shall preserve me from trouble: he shall compass me about with songs of deliverance.
"I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said , I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin,. Selah". Psalm 32: 5
"Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart." Psalm 32: 10-11.
