Psalms Meditation – July 11

“I Will Confess”

Read Psalm 32:1-5

If we hold our sins inside, hoping to hide them, they fester and poison our whole system. The only one who can do anything about sin is God. Confession is the act that brings sin out into the open and lets God take care of it.

PRAYER: As I confess my sins to you, merciful Father, help me to be honest and thorough—not holding back, not denying, not making excuses—and so may I know the glad blessing that comes with forgiveness in Jesus Christ. Amen.

By Eugene Peterson, “A Year with the Psalms” p. 41
