I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

Psalm 32:5 ESV.

It all began so well for the Psalmist. Initially, he rejoiced over all the blessings that God bestows upon the forgiven. But then, sin struck. He covered himself in darkness and blocked the light, the source of his life and joy; therefore, his bones wasted away, and his strength dried up.

Until, finally, reconciliation.

As he confessed his sins, heaven itself opened up above him, and the light shined once more. Immediately, the Father was there to forgive and renew him.

Do you have anything that is keeping you from your Father? If so, do not run to a mere priest or a pastor. They cannot do anything for you. The only one who can forgive you, revitalize your body, and renew your soul is the Father himself, the Holy One of Israel, who is sitting in his Heavenly Temple. His door is always open to his precious children whom he purchased from their sin and corruption with the blood of his Beloved Son.

Do not build a wall around yourself with your sins. Tear away the darkness that is keeping God’s light from reaching you. Run. Run! Into the Temple of your Father and experience the love and forgiveness that is always flowing from his throne of grace. Pour out your heart, your worries, and your sins before him and watch as he comes down to hug you, his precious child.

Only For A Season

God only lets the wicked triumph in order to reveal his power and glory through them later, magnifying his holy name to the entire world.
