Pondering the Psalms - Psalm 32

Each Sunday I am going to choose a Psalm and write down some brief thoughts on  it.

Today I'm looking at Psalm 32

I'm looking at this Psalm in 6 parts:

V. 1-2
Here we are told who the "blessed" are

V. 3-4
Here we see the condition we have due to the guilt of sin

V. 5
Here we see how to deal with sin

V. 6-7
Here we see the only one we can turn to

V. 8-9
Here we learn how God will look after us & guide us when we turn to Him

V. 10-11
Here we have the great example to end with

The Godly Man.
Basically those who are blessed are those who no longer are condemned by sin.
It refers to openly sinning and also sinning in your heart or spirit.

The Ungodly Man.
Before we renounce our sin our condition is dead to spiritual things.
So we need to know how to deal with our sin.
We need to be responsive and willing to turn from our sin and not be stubborn like a mule.

Is our sin covered in the right way?

We need to know that God is the only one to turn to when we are ready to repent & renounce our sin.
Then we can be like the Psalmist who ends with a note of Praise and thankfulness.

The one things we must not overlook is dealing properly with our sin.

Changing our life from 

Only Jesus is the one who can take our sin and give us His righteousness.

  3. I am really enjoying the breakdown of the meaning behind the Psalms that you are posting! Thanks for sharing with #SocialButterflySunday and hope to see you link up again this week :)

  4. Sandra, I love how you break down the chapters in Psalms. Have you thought about putting this series in an ebook? I would love to have a couple of all of these in one place to use when I have my devotions. ~Just a thought. Thank you for sharing with Thankful Thursdays.
