Psalm 32:7 ” You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”

God’s forgiveness is a blessing and He wants us to be joyful in the receiving of that forgiveness. But instead of joy we often have fear and oppression (many times self-inflicted) because guilt, shame and just plain distrust of God hinders us from believing Him. We can’t imagine God completely forgiving us for the terrible mess we’ve made of our life. But a few verses later in this Psalm it says, “Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in Him.” (Psalm 32:10) God’s promise of forgiveness to the repentant soul is only because of His infinite faithfulness and mercy towards us…and all we have to do is simply trust and believe Him…and in that will come the unspeakable joy of forgiveness.
