An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Long Term Forgiveness

(Psa 103:3 KJV)  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

(Proverbs 19 also read)

Grace and forgiveness are found in the OT.   We have a God who “pardons” (5545) “iniquities” (5771).  This seems to be the major theme of this Psalm.  This is the first of a series of words restating, defining and reminding us of the desire of God.

We find genuine hope and assurance here.  Our “iniquities” (5771) are forgiven but there is a nuance of this word that we need to hear.  It not only has to do with forgiveness of sin but also of the consequences of that sin.  What a glorious truth for us to embrace.  

So?  Do you notice how we have constant reasons to rejoice?
