Psalm of David
The Joy of God's Forgiveness!
Psalm 32 verse 1
The first word can be translated
"happy, joyful, or blessed."
3 Different Translations:
are those whose sins are forgiven,
whose wrongs are pardoned.
Good News Translation
Oh, what joy
for those whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight!
is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
The Hebrew word "esher" can be translated:
Getting right with God is
sunshine to our day!
The entire Psalm is written out at the bottom of the page.
Below is an inspirational video on
God created us to follow him and
when we sin -
he intends for us to quickly come to him
and get right with him
through repentance and
then practicing turning away from that sin.
As the speaker mentioned,
when we neglect to come before God and repent of our sins,
it can affect us
mentally, emotionally, and even physically.
We need to repent when...
we continually give in to a particular sin
- such as a lifestyle of a sinful addiction -
instead of repenting and
turning away from that sin
when we have sinned in the past in some way and
we refuse to confess it to God
and ask for his forgiveness.
"Confess your sins"
"Confess" means to say the same thing -
So we confess our sins by agreeing with God.
We confess that we have sinned by doing _______
because God says _________ is a sin.
Oh the Blessed Mercy of God!
When God convicts you of sin,
his words are aimed at one or more specific sins,
not your self-worth.
Reject words of condemnation that tell you
that you are a failure or that you are no good.
Those words are not from God.
Welcome the words that illuminate your sins
you can repent and experience a fresh start.
Let's Get Right with God!
We only fool ourselves and fight a losing battle
when we think we can stay close to God
without repenting of our sins.
We all sin - and all too often.
God gives us the joyous blessing of forgiveness!
David wrote Psalm 32.
David was a true follower of God.
And yet he sinned.
And when David sinned and neglected to repent,
his relationship with God stagnated
his mind and body suffered.
We can't be truly happy,
unless we are
Right with God!
Right with God!

Recipe for Happiness
Same speaker but a very different message from video above.
Psalm 17:15 TLB teaches us to say...
But as for me,
my contentment is not in wealth
but in seeing you [God]
and knowing all is well between us.
And when I awake in heaven,
I will be fully satisfied,
for I will see you face-to-face.
Get right with God -
Stay right with God.
This is the way to stay close to God...
When you sin,
be quick to repent.
God is ready to give you a clean slate.
When God says "No" to our desire to sin -
he is saving us from heartache.
God knows the best way to live.
Each of us is
Prone to Wander
There is an old hymn that says:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
prone to leave the God I love;
here's my heart, O take and seal it;
seal it for thy courts above.
I post the hymn below...
Creating a Passion for God
is an example
of a Bible verse that speaks of
Passion for God.
You, God, are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1 NIV
After the following section,
we have posted the entire Psalm 32...
Today sexual sin is not hidden - but public.
So I'm including some extra encouragement.
The only sex that is pleasing to God
is sex between a man and a woman
who are married.
That is it....
No other sex is pleasing unto him.
All other sex is sin.
Let's pray often
for our loved ones
who are not right with God in this area.
Psalm 32 ERV
"A maskil of David" which means - A teaching of David for us.
It is a great blessing
when people are forgiven for the wrongs they have done,
when their sins are erased.
2 It is a great blessing
when the Lord says they are not guilty,
when they don’t try to hide their sins.
3 Lord, I prayed to you again and again,
but I did not talk about my sins.
So I only became weaker and more miserable.
4 Every day you made life harder for me.
I became like a dry land in the hot summertime. Selah
5 But then I decided to confess my sins to the Lord.
I stopped hiding my guilt and told you about my sins.
And you forgave them all! Selah
6 That is why your loyal followers pray to you while there is still time.
Then when trouble rises like a flood, it will not reach them.
7 You are a hiding place for me.
You protect me from my troubles.
You surround me and protect me,
so I sing about the way you saved me. Selah
8 The Lord says, “I will teach you
and guide you in the way you should live.
I will watch over you and be your guide.
9 Don’t be like a stupid horse or mule that will not come to you
unless you put a bit in its mouth and pull it with reins.”
10 Many pains will come to the wicked,
but the Lord’s faithful love will surround those who trust in him.
11 Good people, rejoice and be very happy in the Lord.
All you who want to do right, rejoice!
