“Blessed Believers”
If you are a believer, you are blessed. To see this truth for yourself, please read the following verses.
 
Psalms 32
Of David. A maskil.
Blessed is he
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the man
whose sin the Lord does not count against him
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 upon me;
my strength was sapped
as in the heat of summer.
Selah
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.
Selah
6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you
while you may be found;
surely when the mighty waters rise,
they will not reach him.
7 You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Selah
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you and watch over you.
9 Do not be like the horse or the mule,
which have no understanding
but must be controlled by bit and bridle
or they will not come to you.
10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
but the Lord’s unfailing love
surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11 Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
sing, all you who are upright in heart!
 
The new believer comes to realize that they are a sinner.
Their relationship with the Lord God is broken and there is nothing they can do about it.
 
One way or another, the Holy Spirit gets the Word to lost sinners that the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross takes away their sins forever.
 
When this happens, the one once burden with sin is ready to yell hallelujah.
The burden lifted from that sinner is a tremendous one.
 
With this in mind, please reread psalm 32.
If you are a believer, you will be rejoicing.
