1 How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
2 How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
3 When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away
Through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah.
5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I did not hide;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”;
And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.
6 Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.
7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:1-7
David understands the power and relief of forgiveness. It’s a human condition regardless of lot in life or belief system. Despite being on the run a lot, David knew freedom.
You see this kind of freedom of Christian pastors who are in jail for their faith.
Yes, of course, they have their moments of “what did I do?” or “why me, Lord?” but they understand true freedom.
Despite their horrible living conditions, they know that nothing man does to them matters in the end. Humiliated, degraded, families threatened, beaten, forced to confess to made-up crimes, hungering, thirsting, and all because they don’t think the way they’re supposed to think. These men an women of God have and need the strength only God can provide.
They definitely need our prayers today and always.
