AUGUST 26 - Meditation: Psalm 32:1-8

DAY 26 – P321M
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt
Today’s Meditation: Psalm 32:1-8

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 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.
For this shall everyone that is godly pray unto Thee in a time when mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place; Thou shalt preserve me from trouble; Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with Mine eye.”
Psalm 32:1-8

Ladder Rung: P321M
and M are the first and last letters of Psalm.
Selection of words to aid in memory:
Provision Made.
Provision is made for the sin of the soul, and through the blood of Christ, man is made whole.
32:1 is our reference.
At 3:00 PM our passage will be rehearsed x2.
We will make it our goal to share this needful promise with 1 whom Christ places on our path.

Blessedness is ascribed to the soul made clean of sin.
Where conviction runs deep, and where confession runs true, be sure that Christ is at work and bringing into conformity and communion that “one” whom His soul ardently loves and desires.
The mysterious power of Christ at work displays itself, never more clearly, surely, or purely, than to the one and through the one made conscious and aware of its own depravity.
Man is simply too proud and self-centered a being to be brought to a point of his sinful state on his own; he most certainly will not entertain the thought of scrutiny and study upon it by those who might mercilessly abandon and reject it, but for Christ at work within him.
It is always Christ at work and the Holy Spirit’s presence which bring consciousness and conviction to the soul; and a healthier sign there could not be of His presence.
Distress of soul may be experienced for a season … but Christ makes whole for an eternity.
Let not the thoughts and attempts of men to suggest conviction and confession as befitting poor profligates of whom they are not counted, as worrisome to our state.
It is Christ alone, who deems blessed, the broken and confessing.
It is Christ alone, who forgives and pardons.
It is Christ, alone, and none else matters.
“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”
Amen.

Tender and Holy Father,
The merciful care of Thy sinful children remains a great mystery.
Let none fail to absorb the sacrifice of Thy Son’s blood upon its vile and darkened state.
Let none refuse to openly confess sin where Thy presence reveals itself.
Let none subject himself to the consideration of man and neglect Thy greater and weightier deliverance by hiding sin in the recess of hidden heart.
Grant exposure of sin to be met by explosion of blood and let the Saint who dares to hide himself in Thee experience Thy protection.
Thy holiness affords Thee praise.
To Thee be all glory.
Amen.
