Devotion 1-19-24, Psalms 32:1 - 2 - "How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered! How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!" All the nation of Israel knew the rules, how to behave to be a good Jewish man or woman. But few had an intimate relationship with God. Most followed the prescribed sacrificial system to receive forgiveness of sin; but most only experienced a fleeting knowledge of forgiveness and freedom from inquity. Few "knew" God. David "knew" God, had a deep intimate love for God, and was very sensitive to God's intended purposes in his life. David sought God, rather than being satisfied with rules. David not only sacrificed, he confessed. Verse 5, "I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin." In return, God answered, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way in which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you."(verse 8) Nothing has changed. You may choose to follow rules, doing works, or you may choose to draw close to God in intimate relationship. Romans 10:8-10,13- "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation...for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved."
