Planting Your Feet

June 20, 2021

In Psalm 32, David wrote a song that talks about how he found the way back to redemption, restoration, and reconciliation. At this point in his life, David would have been a prime candidate for the series that we are in, because we’ve said that the first step you must take in order to make things right when you are in the wrong is to confess your sin. David had done that. We said the second thing you must do is repent of your sin and with God’s grace turn away from it. David had done that. Now, in this song, David tells us how to plant your feet on the solid rock of forgiveness and turn the sadness of a fault into the gladness of forgiveness. There is a reason why some of you in this room have confessed things you have done wrong and repented of them and have truly asked for forgiveness, but you still don’t feel forgiven. You struggle with guilt and I know why. I hear it all the time, “I still can’t forgive myself.” I am going to show you how to do that today once and for all.
