November 2, 2021 – Psalms 31-35

David declared, “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” (32:1,2). Hear Charles Spurgeon: “He is now blessed, and ever shall be. Be he ever so poor, or sick, or sorrowful, he is blessed in very deed. Pardoning mercy is of all things in the world most to be prized, for it is the only and sure way o happiness. To hear from God’s own Spirit the words 'You are absolved' is joy unspeakable.”


Now I have found the ground wherein

Sure my soul’s anchor may remain--

The wounds of Jesus, for my sin

Before the world’s foundation slain;

Whose mercy shall unshaken stay,

When heav’n and earth are fled away.


Fixed on this ground will I remain,

Though my heart fail and flesh decay;

This anchor shall my soul sustain,

When earth’s foundations melt away.

Mercy’s full pow’r I then shall prove,

Loved with an everlasting love. -- Johann Andreas Rothe (18th century)
