Psalm 32 Summary
In Psalm 32:-1-2, blessed are those whose sins are forgiven by God and have kept their conscience clear before God all the time.
In Psalm 32:3-5, David said he felt God’s judgment is on him when he kept silent about his sin. But after he confess and repent from his sins, God forgive him.
In Psalm 32:6-7, therefore, believers should constantly examine themselves and ask for God’s forgiveness if they sin. David confided in God as his hiding place, who always protect him and deliver him from his troubles.
In Psalm 32:8-9, these verses seem like the word of God. We should not be stubborn and open our hearts to let God guide us in our lives. In this way, we will be able to walk in God’s plan and do his will.
In Psalm 32:10-11, God’s wrath will always be on the wicked but his blessings and protection will be over those who are faithful. Therefore, the righteous should always rejoice in the Lord and be glad.
Psalm 32 Bible Study
1. Be completely honest and open to God
From time to time, we must examine ourselves to see if we have sin against God in anywhere in our lives. You may sin but you did not take note of it. If you don’t know what sin you have committed, you can pray to the Holy Spirit and ask him to reveal it to you. You must always keep your conscience clear, making sure that you don’t sin against God in your motive or actions. In 1 John 1:9, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. In Proverbs 28:13, he that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
