Psalm 32 and Preventing Sin
“I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah” – Psalm 32: 5
We learn from the Psalms of David that there were Psalms written for each specific occasion. There were psalms written for deliverance and there were psalms written for the confession of sin. There were psalms written for giving thanks and psalms written to exclaim with songs of praise. Psalm 32 tells us of a time when David’s sins are confessed and atoned for by GOD.
We learn that the importance of confessing sin is to prevent sin from becoming a pattern of life. It is an understanding that sin is not good and should not become a lifestyle. We learn through David of the importance of praying and confessing one’s sins to GOD to prevent the recurrence of sin.
As believers in the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, we can learn from Scripture of the examples of faithful believers that are able to understand how GOD wants to atone for our sins and allow us to live a life that is true to our beliefs and a life that is able to provide the greatest satisfaction in knowing that we follow the word of GOD. Through our worship of GOD, we find true meaning and understanding of the reality and truths of life.
