The Relief of Forgiveness

The Relief of Forgiveness

Psalm 32:1-11

  • A guilty conscience takes a toll (Psalm 32:3-4).
  • God will forgive us when we acknowledge and confess our sin (Psalm 32:5).

When there is no confession, the waters pile up behind the dam, creating immense pressures on the wall, but as soon as the floodgate is opened, the waters subside and the pressures diminish.

Peter Cragie, Word Biblical Commentary: Psalms 1-50 (Columbia: Word Inc., 1983), 267.
  • God is the way out of the problem (Psalm 32:6-7).
  • Surrender is the best path (Psalm 32:8-11).
