32 A psalm of David.
1 Oh, what joy for those whose rebellion is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
2 Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of sin, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
3 When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long.
4 Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat.
5 Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
6 Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment.
7 For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory.
8 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.
Forgiveness has always been a part of God’s loving nature. He wants to forgive sin. God knows what the best path for all of His creatures is and He is waiting to direct and guide anyone who is willing to let Him. When the knowledge of His grace becomes real in our lives, we experience great joy. It is by faith we believe that God could have possibly loved us so much that He sent us a way of escape from this world of sin. God has made a Way. In the Book of John, Jesus said to us, “I am the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” God is patiently waiting for you to understand and believe in Him. He knows there is great joy for those that do. Anyone who believes in Him will receive absolution from sins. But God is not going to wait forever .There will come a day when time will end. David had the knowledge of God’s judgment on the world at the flood. He knew that God would not tolerate sin forever. While there is still time, you can repent. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring, why not be ready to face eternity with God’s grace instead of His judgment!
Have a God Day!
