You are my hiding place! 32:7 It is good to have the Lord as your hiding place, someone you can run to in trouble of heart, mind or soul. It is not good to bear burdens alone.
“Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.”
Here David points us to the blessing of forgiveness, of being forgiven, of the mercy of the Lord.
This is for us!
In Ephesians 1 (a new testament letter) we read,
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, …”
This is the good news of the gospel, that in Jesus we are forgiven! Because of His own work the Lord does not count our iniquity against us (His people).
This is a good thing. We can grab hold of this in hard times as well as pleasant pastures. It is a life-jacket for the sinking soul.
The Lord is powerful to save, He has saved us indeed!
* Merciful God,
Thank You that Jesus took on the curse of sin, even though He was without sin, so that through and in Him we might have Your righteousness.
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
