Repenting in Light of Psalm 32:1-7
Repentance from Psalm 32:1-7
1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
5 I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
6 Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him.
7 You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.
Repenting in Light of Psalm 32:
Confessed, forgiven sin is the blessed life (v 1 &2)
Unconfessed sin dries up your vitality (v 3)
Agreement with the Scriptures about your sinful state is a safe place to live and demonstrates you aren’t deceived by sin’s deceitfulness (v 5)
Repent today, not tomorrow (v6)
The Lord is your refuge, especially against sin (7)
