It brings me great joy knowing that You have forgiven my transgressions and washed my sins away. Thank-you that through Jesus’ sacrifice, and accepting Your gift of salvation, I am not held guilty – my iniquities are gone. By the power of the Holy Spirit help me to be quick to acknowledged my sin to You. Help me not to behave in an unjust or immoral manner. Thank-you that when I do fall short, and miss the mark, that You are there beside me, convicting me and drawing me to forgiveness. Teach me Your ways, O Lord, and guide and direct me onto the path that I should walk. Thank-you that You surround me with Your mercy. You preserve me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. I will be glad and rejoice in You.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Psalm 32:1-11 NKJV “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
When I kept silent, my bones grew old Through my groaning all the day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!”
