Psalm 32:1–2 (NKJV) —
1 Blessed is he whose
transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.

2 Blessed is the man to whom
the LORD does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

King David wrote this Psalm as a reflection on the Lord’s forgiveness of his sin with Bathsheba. He said he was truly blessed. We are truly blessed when we submit and turn to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Blessed because our transgressions are forgiven and our sin is completely covered. Blessed that God does not impute our sin to our account, even through we are still sinners.

David wrote another Psalm (well he actually wrote many) about this same thing. I love this one line:

Psalm 103:12 (NKJV) — 12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

How far is the east from the west? infinitely far. God has removed our sin from our account. He will not have it on our record in the day of judgment. That is why David knows he is blessed. That is why we should know we are blessed. There is no greater blessing than being forgiven of our sin. What should be our response? David ends Psalm 32 with it.

Psalm 32:11 (NKJV) —
11 Be glad in the LORD and
rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you
upright in heart!
