Getting right with God is

Uplifting!

It brings

sunshine to our day!



The entire Psalm is written out at the bottom of the page.

-

Below is an inspirational video on

Psalm 32.


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

or

when we have sinned in the past in some way and

we refuse to confess it to God

and ask for his forgiveness.



If we confess our sins,

God is faithful and just

to forgive us our sins,

and

to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9



"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

so that

you can repent and experience a fresh start. 



Tuesday 


Let's Get Right with God!


Repentance

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

and

his mind and body suffered.



We can't be truly happy,

unless we are

Right with God!


Happiness is

Being

Right with God!


More about the

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. 



Wednesday 


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. 




As Psalm 32 tells us:

There is

GREAT JOY and GREAT FREEDOM

in being right with the Lord.

-

We stay right with God

by intentionally

putting God on the throne of our heart

every day.




Each of us is

Prone to Wander

away from

God.

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...




Thursday 


Creating a Passion for God

Below

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...

Sexual Sin

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.

Three pages...

Here are prayers to pray.

Psalm 32 


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!

Footnotes: Psalm 32:1 a erased Or “covered over” or “atoned.”

Selah = Pause and think about it.
