Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [for 7/28]

Passage: Psalm 32:1-11
Verse: Psalm 32:7 (NIV 2011)
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.

What type of blessing is it that we should seek?  Psalm 32 tells us:

  • Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
  • Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit [v. 1-2].

May our sins be forgiven.  May our hearts be clean.  May our thoughts be pure.

How is it that we may be forgiven?  Psalm 32 tells us we must:

  • Acknowledged [our] sinand did not cover up [our] iniquity.
  • Confess [our] transgressions to the Lord [v. 5].

We can rejoice in the Lord and be glad [v. 11a].  Praise God.  He will instruct [us] and teach [us] in the way [we] should go; [He] will counsel [us] with [His] loving eye on [us] [v. 8].
