TEXT: PSALM 32:1-2
(1) Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
(2) Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
KEY VERSE: PSALM 51:1
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Here the scripture is telling us about the blessed life. Blessed is the man whose transgression is forgiven; the man that the Lord says his sins have been forgiven; the evils he did for many years of his life have been forgiven. The transgressions, rebellious, wickedness, stubbornness of his life and all his disobedience against God are all forgiven. Such a person has automatically become a blessed person. Blessed is the man whose sin is covered; covered by the blood of Jesus. Blessed is the man that the death of Christ covers him. The blood of Jesus Christ covers him; which means because Jesus has died, he will die no more. Jesus has paid the penalty for him, so his sins has been removed and settled by Jesus Christ. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth no iniquity and in whose spirit there is no guile. There is no guilt of sin or condemnation. The Lord does not count sin upon him and is not condemned because he has been justified by God. He has been set free by God, acquitted by the living God. What a blessing.
The Great blessing you can receive in this life is not money, education, material gifts, promotions, healing, anointing, power, baptism of Holy Spirit, a wife, a husband, a child, etc. No, these are not the greatest blessings of this life. The greatest gift of this life is the gift of forgiveness of sin; that your sins are forgiven by the living God. Yea, that God has cleansed you from sin; God has forgiven you your sins. It means he has removed sin away from you. He has cancelled sin from you and has broken the power of sin in your life. He has set you free from sin so that you do not sin anymore.
You are now free to live a victorious life over sin. You are free! You rule over sin now. Sin is not ruling over you. You control your life and you are not living in sin, because the power of God has given you liberty. What a blessing such a life is! This is because the most difficult problem in the world is the problem of sin. The most miserable life in the world is the life of sin. The most hopeless case in a man’s life is the case of sin. How eternally blessed and joyful that your sins are forgiven by the living God! All you need to do is to confess your sins and He will forgive you and set you free. 1 John 1:9.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: He that covereth his sins shall not prosper but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
SONG FOR THE DAY: He paid the debt He did not owe, I own the debt I could not pay, I needed someone to wash my sins away…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Exodus 37-38; Matthew 23:23-39
