Blessed is he whose sin is covered

David said in Psalm 32: 6, “For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found:” that their transgressions be forgiven and that their sins be covered.

Sin, together with iniquity, trespass or transgression are words that communicate the same idea but of course carry different meanings where they are applied.

Sin is a nature present in all of us born after Adam that always should be kept subdued. If lefted unchecked it progresses into iniquity or trespass. Sin needs to stay covered all the time, and whenever  you’ve trespassed, confessions must made and be forgiven so that you walk free again. It is that sin nature in us liable to trespassing, and a trespasser is basically someone who crosses a line whether intentionally or unintentionally. Anyone can trespass, it doesn’t matter who you’re. That’s the reason we should always pray, “forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12). He goes on to say, “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:13-15).

And back to our scripture, David said, “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.” (Psalm 32:1-2). Transgression refers to presumptuous sins, i.e., a failure to recognise your limits. To transgress is to choose to intentionally disobey, like Judas Iscariot or Lucifer did; transgression is a wilful trespassing. Iniquity also refers to those premeditated choices to commit offence but then continue to do them without repentance. Continuing in so doing leads to sinning against the Holy Ghost and the has grave repercussions or punishment. David continued with Bathsheba as if nothing wrong had happened.

However God is able to forgive any type of sin that’s confessed properly. But “Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.” Micah 2:1

Psalm 32:10-11 says, “Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord , mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord , and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.” Habakkuk 2:4 says, “Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.” And Romans 1:17, “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” And Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” John 3:5-7

You must be born again, to be born again of the Spirit so you should afford to keep under your body and all it’s sinful nature into subjection “that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.” (Romans 7:6). “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.” Romans 8:8-10

The Spirit says come!

Bible verse of the day

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
