Isaiah 26:13 O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.

Psalm 32:5 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. Selah.

Oh what a great lesson the Psalmist gives us here on repentance.  It is vital to our spiritual health that we come clean with the Lord regularly.  This sinful nature is continually pulling at us attempting to lead us astray.  We must come clean daily, if not several times a day.  Let’s take a look over in this verse for some guidance.  He says he “acknowledged” his sin unto the Lord.  In other words, he made the Lord aware of his sin.  Well now the Lord already knew about the sin.  What we must realize is that admitting our sin to the Lord brings it out in the open.  The first step to repentance is to get it out in the open.  Once we say it we can’t take it back.  It’s now out there.  This rids the issue of pride in the situation.  He acknowledges his sin and then we see that he even acknowledges his “iniquity” before the Lord.  Iniquity is sin that has to do with our morality.  You see friend, all sin eventually leads to the destruction of our moral being.  We must reach down deep into our heart and pull out those immoral sins and lay them before the Lord.  Whether it is physical sin or mental sin, it must be released to the Lord.  Now he confesses his “transgressions” unto the Lord.  Transgression here means rebellion.  Harbored sin always creates rebellion.  A person who becomes rebellious is a person with harbors sin in their life.  One bad potato in the bag will eventually spread rot to the entire bag.  And…have you ever smelled a rotten potato??   After confession of all his sin a wonderful, merciful and graceful thing happens.  and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin”.  Hallelujah, praise the Lord!  The Lord is faithful to forgive.  Notice he says that the Lord forgave him of “the iniquity” of his sin.  Remember iniquity is the immorality of sin.  In other words the filth of his sin.  Sin spreads filth my friend.  We have a reminder this morning of the great importance of repentance.  Come clean with the Lord dear friend.  And then we may rest in the Lord.  He finishes the verse with “Selah”.  This signifies a pause for rest.  Amen!

Proverbs 28:13  He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Sin.  James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.  Sin is as a poison that we personally drink and then allow it to eat us from inside out.  Have you ever noticed that when we do something that we know is not right that we tend to be sneaky about it?  We will go to great extents to hide it from others that we know will call our attention to its wrongness.  We hide it because we know it’s wrong.  When it’s wrong and we know it’s wrong then it is charged to our account as sin.  Sin must be dealt with.  Notice our verse deals with our attempting to hide our wrongs.  “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper”.  He mentions the situation here as covering it.  Covering sin is about like trying to hide a live animal.  I am reminded when the Lord through Samuel commanded King Saul to eradicate the Amalekites and all their living including their animals.  He was to completely destroy any living thing that pertained to the Amalekites.  But he decided to keep some for himself.  When he reports in to Samuel he has attempted to hide it from him. 1Samuel 15:13-14 And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD.  And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?   It is hard to hide a live, bleating animal.  And my friend it is hard to hide our live bleating sin as well.   We are warned here in our verse that shady works will cause us not to prosper.  This could mean physically and spiritually.  Attempting to cover sin will eventually haunt us.  But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy”. We must confess our sin to the Lord .  We must admit to him our wrongs.  Many times we tend to make up excuses rather than to admit our wrongs as sin.  We say we did it because of this or because of that.  Or we say so and so caused us to do this or that.  Laying the blame on someone else will not set us free from the penalty of sin.  We must answer for our own sin.  Our verse tells us if we confess our sin to the Lord He will have mercy on us.  Why would He do this?  Because of JESUS!  Hallelujah!  It is the blood of Jesus that pardons us of our sin.  The penalty of sin is death.  But, praise the Lord, Jesus died for us.  1Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.  He took our place.  The only thing we are expected to do is confess our sin.  That seems like an easy thing to do, but we tend to make it complicated because of our pride.  We are too proud to admit our wrongs.  Pride does still bring on destruction!  Lastly, we are promised mercy IF we forsake our sin.  It is easy to make a habit of sin.  We must confess and forsake that which does so easily beset us.  To forsake means to leave it or to abandon it.  And our wonderful KJV Bible uses the “eth” at the end of our word here.  This shows continuance.  We must continue to strive to abandon sinful situations.  If we know trouble is there then don’t go there.  If the Spirit makes us aware of a wrong circumstance then we must forsake it.  Well, personally I feel convicted.  I’m going to pray and ask the Lord to cleanse me of any harbored sin in my life.  I encourage you all to do the same.  Is that sin I hear bleating??  Sin is a nasty animal.  We must rid it from our path.  Amen.

 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
