Joy: Psalms 32 Style!

Adapted from

Many of us confuse joy and happiness. Happiness tends to be a feeling that ebbs and flows based on outward circumstances. Joy, on the other hand, endures despite what we might be facing.

Psalm 32 shares reasons why Christians should be filled with joy:

  • Our disobedience is forgiven!
  • Our sin is put out of sight!
  • Our record has been cleared of guilt!
  • We are forgiven.
  • We can pray.
  • Judgment won’t overcome us.
  • God hides us.
  • God protects us.
  • God guides us.
  • God advises us.
  • God watches over us.
  • Love surrounds us.

That list just makes me feel like doing the happy joyful dance! Care to join me?
