Like An Owl Among the Ruins

From Series: The Missing Peace

Psalm 32:3-4  (ID: 2540)

One natural response to sin is to cover it up, assuming we will move forward without negative consequences. The example of King David, however, suggests such an approach never really works. Psalm 32 describes the physical decline and despair David experienced as he attempted to conceal his sin. Though such afflictions can be uncomfortable at the time, Alistair Begg encourages us to see them as God intends: as a measure of His grace to draw us back into fellowship with Him.

3For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

4For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up2 as by the heat of summer. Selah
