This morning in our group devotion we read Psalms 32. In this chapter, David talks about repentance and that there are consequences if we stay silent and do not confess our sins to God and ask for forgiveness. David talks about when he kept silent; his bones wasted away, his strength was sapped as in the heat of summer and God’s hand was heavy on him. But then he acknowledged his sin to God and said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord” and the Lord forgave David!
This chapter also talks about how God is our hiding place in times of trouble and that “the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him”!
