Discussion for Psalms 32

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We must continue to trust in Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for "he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about".
  • A disciple
    "I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin." All the times we read about Jesus receiving and forgiving the sinner, we should recognize that there were certain conditions that were met by the one coming to the Lord, so that he was accepted. Not every place where the Sower sows!
  • A disciple
    "..and in whose spirit there is no guile:" [deceitful cunning: duplicity; stratagem, trick]. We may not come to God in the Name of JESUS, while in our hearts and minds; "full of the twists and defenses" of seeking to portray ourselves for something other than what we ARE REALLY; no man may presume to waltz into the Holy of Holies to take the Blessings of Peace unworthily; there are conditions!
  • David Shibli
    It is so wonderful that our Father has united us with His Living Word. Bless Jesus!
  • Dougedge
    God's written words are the instructions for all people; believe and receive the promise he has made; without faith and belief in his words; we have no hope in receiving his promise of eternal life.
  • Anita
    The Lord is good and His mercy endureth forever.
