The Righteous shall see it and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth. Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD. Psalms 107:42-43
We who see that Jesus Christ is all our righteousness rejoice in Him. We see by faith His work of salvation that has quickened us from the dead and by grace has given us faith in Christ. Therefore, we confess that “we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works” (Ephesians 2:1-10).
If we are to be wise and understand the lovingkindness of God (v. 43), then let us observe the great cause of our rejoicing in Christ: “all iniquity shall stop her mouth.”
Believer do you still have trouble with sin? Do you often struggle with God over your salvation? Is your conscience heavy with your sin? Are you afraid of your evil thoughts?
Believers observe that when we come to the law it shut our mouth and caused us to own our guilt. (Rom.3:19) But now that Jesus Christ has come and shed His precious blood for all our sins, it is our iniquity that must be silent.
Behold that Jesus has “finished the transgression, made an end of sin and made reconciliation for iniquity and brought in an everlasting righteousness (Daniel 9:24).
So, then who then can condemn us or separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus? The answer to our conscience, this world and Satan is that “There is Therefore NOW NO Condemnation to us who are in Christ Jesus (Romans.8:1).
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us (Romans 8:33-34).
