It has been said that every person is endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, including the pursuit of happiness. As Alistair Begg considers the theme of happiness, though, he describes two scenes from Psalm 32: one resulting in sorrows, and the other leading to songs of joy. Though everyone begins in the first picture, we can move to the second through God’s grace and confession, experiencing the true happiness we desire.
10Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.
11Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
