FORGIVEN!!! David shows us that the happiness of man consists only in the FREE forgiveness of sins, for nothing can be more terrible than to have God for our enemy.
How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
How blesses is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away
Through my groaning all day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was drained away as with the fever het of summer.
I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I did not hide;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”;
And You forgave the guilt of my sin.
Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time
when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.
You are my hiding place’ You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance.”
Joel 2:32 says , “And it shall come to pass that whosever call upon the name of Jehovah shall be delivered”. God delivered David from his sins! He reached the point where pain ended and joy began! His “hiding place” in verse seven is one of comfort and security and it can only be found in the Lord.
