…..3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil din your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment…..
Your meditational thought of today is from Psalm 51. One of the most freeing things a believer must do is acknowledge their sin. In so doing, God responds by forgiving us. King David expressed in verse 3, “For I acknowledge my transgression, and my sin is always before me.” It is imperative that we understand that our sin is against God alone. David expressed in verse 4, “Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight, that you may be found just when You speak, and blameless when You judge.” It is a sign of arrogance to act as though we have not committed any sinful act.
It is necessary for every believer to keep short sin accounts. God is willing and able to wipe the slate clean in order to allow us to keep moving forward. Take some time to realize the long-suffering love and patience of God who forgives us when we humbly confess our sins. That is comforting to know that He will not hold anything against us when we seek His forgiveness. Meditate on this.
Blessings to you,
