S – Psalms 32:5 “Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.”
O – A few verses earlier we read: “what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty! When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long.” The gospel reveals God’s forgiving heart. Those who are not centered on the gospel run away from God when they sin. Gospel centered people run to God when they sin.
A – I want to live my life in constant confession. Today I will spend time asking God to search my heart, reveal sin (Psalms 139), and forgive me.
P – Lord, thank you for sending Jesus to forgive me.
Are you hiding guilt from God? Confess.
