3 Iniquities and much varied guilt prevail against me; [yet] as for our transgressions, You forgive and purge them away [make atonement for them and cover them out of Your sight]!
Although we may feel overwhelmed by the multitude of our sins, God will forgive them all if we ask sincerely. Do you feel as though God could never forgive you, that your sins are too many, or that some of them are too great? The good news is that God can and will forgive them all. Nobody is beyond redemption, and nobody is so full of sin that he or she cannot be made clean.

I thank You for Your Word that never returns void and that is alive and speaks into my life everyday I read it.I thank You Lord that even as Your Word speaks to us that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and goes on to say that the penalty of sin is death (Romans 6:23) but the bountiful free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. I thank You Lord that Your Word tells that You didn’t send Jesus to condemn the world, but to save it (John 3:17). Lord as I look to this week and what is ahead, I lift up my words, my thoughts, and my actions to You, asking You Lord to cleans and purify my so that in all I say and all I do Your light, Your truth, Your hope and Your wisdom would flow through me that You would receive all the praise and honor and glory in Jesus’ name.
Lord, as I prepare for this week , I pray Lord that You will open the right door of opportunity so that I may step in and step up into the next phase of Your plan in my life. For Lord, You have revealed to me the promised land ahead and where I am to go, so I have prepared myself and await the opportunity to see the first victory as I walk into all that You have planned for me. Help me to have words of wisdom. Help to find favor in all the meetings You planned. And Lord, may Your light and hope shine in and through me and may the testimony of my life bring you praise and honor and glory, in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
1 MY HEART overflows with a goodly theme; I address my psalm to a King. My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.2 You are fairer than the children of men; graciousness is poured upon Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever.3 Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O mighty One, in Your glory and Your majesty!4 And in Your majesty ride on triumphantly for the cause of truth, humility, and righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God); and let Your right hand guide You to tremendous things.5 Your arrows are sharp; the peoples fall under You; Your darts pierce the hearts of the King’s enemies.6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; the scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.7 You love righteousness, uprightness, and right standing with God and hate wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your fellows. 8 Your garments are all fragrant with myrrh, aloes, and cassia; stringed instruments make You glad.9 Kings’ daughters are among Your honorable women; at Your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.10 Hear, O daughter, consider, submit, and consent to my instruction: forget also your own people and your father’s house;11 So will the King desire your beauty; because He is your Lord, be submissive and reverence and honor Him.12 And, O daughter of Tyre, the richest of the people shall entreat your favor with a gift.13 The King’s daughter in the inner part [of the palace] is all glorious; her clothing is inwrought with gold. 14 She shall be brought to the King in raiment of needlework; with the virgins, her companions that follow her, she shall be brought to You.15 With gladness and rejoicing will they be brought; they will enter into the King’s palace.16 Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, whom You will make princes in all the land.17 I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; therefore shall the people praise and give You thanks forever and ever.
1 EVERY WISE woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands.2 He who walks in uprightness reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, but he who is contrary and devious in his ways despises Him.3 In the fool’s own mouth is a rod [to shame] his pride, but the wise men’s lips preserve them.4 Where no oxen are, the grain crib is empty, but much increase [of crops] comes by the strength of the ox.5 A faithful witness will not lie, but a false witness breathes out falsehoods.6 A scoffer seeks Wisdom in vain [for his very attitude blinds and deafens him to it], but knowledge is easy to him who [being teachable] understands.7 Go from the presence of a foolish and self-confident man, for you will not find knowledge on his lips.8 The Wisdom [godly Wisdom, which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] of the prudent is to understand his way, but the folly of [self-confident] fools is to deceive.9 Fools make a mock of sin and sin mocks the fools [who are its victims; a sin offering made by them only mocks them, bringing them disappointment and disfavor], but among the upright there is the favor of God. 10 The heart knows its own bitterness, and no stranger shares its joy.11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown, but the tent of the upright shall flourish.12 There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of mirth is heaviness and grief.14 The backslider in heart [from God and from fearing God] shall be filled with [the fruit of] his own ways, and a good man shall be satisfied with [the fruit of] his ways [with the holy thoughts and actions which his heart prompts and in which he delights].15 The simpleton believes every word he hears, but the prudent man looks and considers well where he is going.16 A wise man suspects danger and cautiously avoids evil, but the fool bears himself insolently and is [presumptuously] confident.17 He who foams up quickly and flies into a passion deals foolishly, and a man of wicked plots and plans is hated.18 The simple acquire folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.19 The evil men bow before the good, and the wicked [stand suppliantly] at the gates of the [uncompromisingly] righteous.20 The poor is hated even by his own neighbor, but the rich has many friends.21 He who despises his neighbor sins [against God, his fellowman, and himself], but happy (blessed and fortunate) is he who is kind and merciful to the poor.22 Do they not err who devise evil and wander from the way of life? But loving-kindness and mercy, loyalty and faithfulness, shall be to those who devise good.23 In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty.24 The crown of the wise is their wealth of Wisdom, but the foolishness of [self-confident] fools is [nothing but] folly.25 A truthful witness saves lives, but a deceitful witness speaks lies [and endangers lives].26 In the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children shall always have a place of refuge.27 Reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, that one may avoid the snares of death. 28 In a multitude of people is the king’s glory, but in a lack of people is the prince’s ruin.29 He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who is hasty of spirit exposes and exalts his folly. 30 A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.31 He who oppresses the poor reproaches, mocks, and insults his Maker, but he who is kind and merciful to the needy honors Him. 32 The wicked is overthrown through his wrongdoing and calamity, but the [consistently] righteous has hope and confidence even in death.33 Wisdom rests [silently] in the mind and heart of him who has understanding, but that which is in the inward part of [self-confident] fools is made known. 34 Uprightness and right standing with God (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) elevate a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.35 The king’s favor is toward a wise and discreet servant, but his wrath is against him who does shamefully.
