David knew he must go to the Most High with his sin, because as he described his bones waxed old. When someone uses this term waxed old it means that he was weighted down and worn out. Hence, this is the feeling one gets when a burdenous guilt is about us.
How is it then if we are feeling downcast in our spirit, bowed over and overflowing with ‘our’ sin that we think we can lay our hands on someone else without confessing that?
Some of you experienced that today at the alter. Tsk, Tsk. Shameful that we take the Most High for a fool.
David said, “Because I kept silence, my bones waxed old, from my crying all the day. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: [Therefore] I became thoroughly miserable while a thorn was fastened in me. [Therefore] I acknowledged my sin, and hid not mine iniquity: I said, I will confess mine iniquity to the Lord against myself; and thou forgavest the ungodliness of my heart. (Psalm 32:2-8). [Emphasis Added].
And further he adds, “Therefore shall every holy one pray to thee in a fit time: only in the deluge of many waters they shall not come nigh to him. (v.6).
Ask: what is a fit time? In the translation the phrase is in a time when he may be found, however what is a fit time?
When something fits it is appropriate, that is, if I am bound by sin then the appropriation would be to come to the Most High ready to admit my guilt, not coming as if I haven’t did nothing. This thing is a suitable, appropriate time even David knew that and he was living according to Torah when there was still a sacrifice. Can anyone hear that?. Then how is it that someone is thinking with their soiled mind that we can do any old thing and then come to the Most High to pray without confession….literally unclean–its impossible.
There is no more sacrifice we must confess it.
This is a great truth.
