Serious Effects

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 38:1-22

Throughout Psalm 38 David describes, with vivid imagery, the negative impact that sin has on our lives. The message is clear: When we choose to sin there will be consequences--spiritual consequences (our relationship with God is hindered), physical consequences ("no soundness in my flesh" and "no health in my bones" (vs.3)) and emotional and mental consequences ("I groan because of the tumult of my heart" (vs. 8)).

What from this psalm stood out to you most about the effects of sin, and why? When and how have you experienced the impact of unconfessed sin? When you asked God to forgive you (like David did in verse 18), what happened? In other words, how did you feel and how did it impact you? Tami

Tami,I am asking the Lord as I normally do to answer these questions.

What from this psalm stood out to you most about the effects o mif sin, and why?
Vs.2 " For your arrows have sunk into me,
and your hand has come down on me."
David is miserable under conviction and he is missing the sweet fellowship
with the Lord because of his sins.
When and how have you experienced the impact of unconfessed sin?
Just like David did,so miserable that I could ever wish the Lord would
forgive my sins so I could again enjoy sweet fellowship with my BEST
Friend!

When you asked God to forgive you (like David did in verse 18), what
Peace and joy is restored and sweet fellowship is back again with
Jesus Who forgives and full of mercy.


In other words, how did you feel and how did it impact you?

Makes me want to never sin again!!
