[ Blessedness of Forgiveness and of Trust in God. ] [ A Psalm of David. A Maskil. ] How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered! — Psalm 32:1
Have you experienced the pure blessedness of forgiveness? Have you called out to God and received the forgiveness of Jesus Christ that He freely gave for you on the cross? Do you realize the magnitude of having your sin covered? Freedom from shame, regret, guilt, insecurity, unworthiness.
Childlike Trust in the Lord.
A Song of Ascents, of David.
O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty;
Nor do I involve myself in great matters,
Or in things too difficult for me.
2 Surely I have composed and quieted my soul;
Like a weaned child rests against his mother,
My soul is like a weaned child within me.
3 O Israel, hope in the Lord
From this time forth and forever. — Psalm 131
Childlike faith leaves no room for worry, no room for stress from responsibility or “too much on my plate”, or insecurity. My Father has it all under control. I can trust that He wants the best for me and will supply all my needs. And . . . if I would just get out of His way and let Him lead, I would be so much more secure in my life. As David pleads with Israel to hope in the Lord, I believe the Lord wants us to hope in Him from this time forth and forever. It is so worth it.
