My Bones Grew Old

“When I kept silent, my bones grew old, Through my groaning all the day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer.” – Psa. 32:3-4

Here’s what happens when we don’t confess sin.

Forgiven, Covered, Not Imputed

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.” – Psa. 32:1-2

Sin is forgiven, covered, and not imputed (not counted against).

Content In Whatever Circumstances

“I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” – Phil. 4:11

Ultra-countercultural verse for our society today which seems malcontent in whatever circumstance it is.

As, What, and When Thou Wilt

“For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.” – Rom. 11:35

“As Thou wilt; what Thou wilt; when Thou wilt.” – Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)

You Have Opened My Ears

“You have opened my ears” – Psa. 40:6

The Hebrew here for open is “to dig.” God digs open our ears so we can hear the truth of the Gospel.

Many Things To Say To You

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.” – Jesus (John 16:12)

What Jesus has to say and reveal is never exhausted.

However, revelation is only made to a mind which can accept it.

In Power, In the Holy Spirit, and With Full Conviction

For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction.” – 1Thes. 1:5

Man’s word alone cannot do it.

Not Redeemed With

You were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Pet. 1:18-19

Only Jesus redeems.
