Psalms 32:3 – When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
This verse is in the context of Psalms 32:5 – when David held on to his sin, and didn’t acknowledge it to God – it started to have a very real effect on his body. Sin really can affect us health-wise – it can give us both physical and mental ailments.
And yet groaning is not the same as confession. We can complain because of the effects of our sin, or we can get to the heart of the matter and acknowledge our sin before God and get healed!
Don’t complain – confess! Don’t keep silent – bring your sin before God and get it sorted! Don’t wait for tomorrow – do it today!!
