Day 5 – We Will Not be Silent

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Psalm 32:1-7

1 Blessed are those

whose transgressions are forgiven,

whose sins are covered.

2 Blessed are those

whose sin the LORD does not count against them

and in whose spirit is no deceit.

3 When I kept silent,

my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night

your hand was heavy on me;

my strength was sapped

as in the heat of summer.

5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you

and did not cover up my iniquity.

I said, “I will confess

my transgressions to the LORD.”

And you forgave

the guilt of my sin.

6 Therefore let all the faithful pray to you

while you may be found;

surely the rising of the mighty waters

will not reach them.

7 You are my hiding place;

you will protect me from trouble

and surround me with songs of deliverance.

King David tried to conceal his sin (“kept silent”) from God. But he discovered that the blessed are those whose sins are not counted against them by God. They never deserved it or earned it, but they received forgiveness from God. This is why David rejoices and proclaims that God’s people are blessed! This is the amazing grace of God. We too are blessed because we have received forgiveness in Christ. He has surrounded us with songs of deliverance, not just to sing for ourselves, but to “sing” to our generation. One way we can do this is through prayer.

Responding to the Transmitted Message:

In this fresh season of prayer and learning how to pray, let’s believe what God has done for us, and that we can join with Him, through prayer. Pray for your missional groups and campus fellowships – that God would empower us together, to live by faith to bring His songs of deliverance to our generation.
