Blessed are we to have gone before the Lord and ask for forgiveness. Our iniquities are no longer a stumbling block to our salvation. We no longer need to be anxious for the day of judgment, for our reward is safe and secure in the hands of the Great God our Father.
“Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.”
Through Jesus we can enter the great throne room and lay our troubles at the foot of the mercy seat, where God will provide us the strength we need to overcome. Our hope rests with the Lord, who gave His life so that our sins would be no more.
Rejoice in the blessing that lies within us; for by the Holy Spirit, which God gave us in our new birth, we have surety of one day dwelling with the Lord forever. Blessed be the name of the Lord, for He is good always.
By the many sorrows we had to endure, we now have gladness knowing our place will be with the Lord. No one can take away what God has given to us freely. By Christ’s holy and righteous name, we are to reign forever. Blessed are the forgiven.
