I read Psalm 32 and when I read verse 6 I was moved to understand what this verse really meant.
Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found;
When I first read the passage, my initial interpretation was that there will come a time when God won’t be found. Therefore we should pray to him while we still can. But actually what this verse is saying is that God can be found! Just focus on the statement “You may be found.” God is there – he is always there and always with us. But finding him depends on whether we are really looking for him. In the context of Psalm 32, there is the focus on confession. God is there to forgive us (always) of our sin, but for him to forgive us, we first need to confess our sins to him. God and forgiveness cannot be separated. God is forgiving and that’s why David was rejoicing in verse 1 to 2. Because there is forgiveness!
The example of a horse’s bit and bridle is given as an example in verse 9:
Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding,
Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check,
Otherwise they will not come near to you.
Because we shouldn’t be like a horse, where a bit and bridle is needed for us to approach God. If we have sinned, let us approach God immediately. We shouldn’t wait until the Lord breaks us and allows us to be overtaken by the consequences of our actions. God is there to forgive you and he is just waiting for you. Do not wait for anything else before you move and ask for forgiveness. He loves you and will forgive you immediately, whatever your sin may be. Be glad that the Lord may be found. Be glad he is always willing to forgive you as long as you confess you sin.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
What sin is the Lord dealing with you right now? Confess your sins to Jesus and He will forgive you immediately – 1 John 1:9.
