PSALM 32---Forgiveness
To be read after Psalm 51

Blessed is the man whose transgression is forgiven,
who sin is covered
(under the blood of Yeshua...confessed sin).

Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no guile.
(no deceit )
When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
(unconfessed sin)

For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon me;
my moisture is turned into the drought of summer
(think about this)

I acknowledged my sin unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid.
I said,
I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD;
and Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.
(think about this).

For this shall everyone that is godly pray unto Thee
in a time when Thou mayest be found:
surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

Thou art my Hiding Place; Thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way that thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with Mine eye.
Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding:
whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

Many sorrows shall be unto 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.

"Who is a God like you, Who forgives iniquity and passes over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?  He retains not His anger forever, because He delights in mercy and loving-kindness ...
You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea." Micah 7:18-19

.........................................PSALM 51 ( confession of sin ) FOLLOWED BY PSALM 32 (forgiveness )

In our daily walk there are highs and lows.
Psalm 51 is an excellent Psalm when taking an inventory of one's self...examining our conscience in regards to faults, mistakes, errors and sins.
As the Holy Spirit reveals to our hearts what our mind tries so hard to suppress (denial),
we come under spiritual conviction and repentance.
We confess our sins, even our hidden,secret sins to the Lord.
We are refreshed with a clean, clear conscience.
Our relationship then is a conduit free of static.

Whatever we keep hidden , will come back upon us.
"And be sure your sin will find you out."
Numbers 32:23

We do not confess our sins to priests but to God only, and to any injured party.
After we have confessed our sin, there remains no more guiltiness.
Conviction comes from the Holy Ghost...guilt comes from the adversary.
Guilt repeats offenses over and over again without any remedy.
It bears not the fruit of repentance (as in conviction) but results in self-loathing,
and thus more sins.

That is why after reading Psalm 51 and then confessing our sins to God,
it is always good to read
Psalm 32 about God's forgiveness of our sins...
our absolution in Him.
We are now clean, free and forgiven.
