Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah
If you have ever had a large debt that you have been paying on for a long time, it sure feels good when the final payment is made. I am talking about a really large bill, such as a mortgage, a car payment, or a business loan that took a long time to pay off. At times during the process, it may have seemed as if there was never going to be a payoff date. You may have felt as if you would be paying on that one bill for the rest of your life. Then came that great day, it is paid for. PAID IN FULL. You own it now and are free and clear of this burden. What a wonderful freeing feeling that is.
Can you imagine how great it might be to feel that wonderful sense of completeness every single day? Well, you can if you are a Christian. Every day you can go to the Lord, make a deposit of your sin, and withdraw a life that is marked with the blood of Jesus Christ, “PAID IN FULL.” Free from the penalty of sin, and free now to live for Jesus. What a wonderful feeling of complete forgiveness. To know that at one point I made the wisest investment of all my life when I deposited my life into the hands of an almighty and merciful God. In return, He not only washed away all my past sin, but also washes away my future sin as well. All I had to do was give Him my life and in return I would receive an eternity of available forgiveness. This is not a liberty to live in sin. The truth of the matter is, if someone has been freed from their sin debt, they should not desire to live in that life of sin any longer. That was the debt they just were freed from.
“Selah” is a word put into the musical Psalms that means rest, or pause and reflect for a moment. The placement of this word Selah in today’s Psalm is wonderful. As now, we can really rest and reflect back on the day in which Jesus Paid It All, and “All To Him I Owe.”
