Keep short accounts

Psalms 32:1-5

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. When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. I acknowledge 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. Selah.

What a heavy weight we must carry when we choose to not confess our and sins to God. Guilt will suck the very life from you. In verse 3 of Psalms 32 David says that when he kept silent about his sin, his bones became old, or in other words it was making an old man out of him. Christians, we must realize that it’s essential to have a joyful life bathed in forgiveness, we must keep short accounts with our Lord. In verse 5, David states that he no longer will hide his sin, yet confess it. Confession is the key that unlocks forgiveness for David, and for us as well. When we know we have done wrong in the sight of God, confess immediately, run to God, and the forgiveness that we so yearn to have will come falling like rain over us with the full assurance of Christ’s love and acceptance.
