When we trust in God for the forgiveness of our sin, we are truly blessed. God has the ability to cover our sin as if it never happened when we trust and believe in him to do it. David recognized this in Psalm 32. He understood the impact forgiveness has in bringing true joy. When we ask God to forgive us of our sins, He gives us real happiness and relief from the guilt of carrying the burden.

Blessed is he whose transgression are forgiven, whose sins are covered.

– Psalm 32:1
