Joy of Forgiveness

July 20

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 31 – 33

Verse of the Day: Psalm 32:1 – “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.”

This Psalm is by David about the joy of forgiveness. He truly understood this topic. Being a man after God’s own heart, his sin with Bathsheba and against Uriah haunted him. He talks in verses 3 and 4 of this Psalm about the way that he struggled with the knowledge of his sin.

He goes on to speak of confessing his sin to God and that God had forgiven him. He ends this Psalm with these words – “Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he that trusteth in Jehovah, lovingkindness shall compass him about. Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous; And shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.”

Prayer: Gracious and Forgiving God, I come to You today confessing _______. I thank You for Your grace and mercy and forgiveness. I thank You that You restore the sinner. Amen.
