Psalms 32-35

What does it say?
Psalm 32: Do not keep silent about personal sin but confess your sin to the Lord; the Lord is abounding in lovingkindness towards those who confess sin and trust in the Lord for forgiveness.
Psalm 33: Thank the Lord and give him credit for all that you have because all comes from God. Do not fear the created things or trust in their power; fear the Lord alone and trust in the Lord alone for help.
Psalm 34: The psalmist gives glory to the Lord for delivering him from the wicked by teaching others to seek the Lord. No one who takes refuge in the Lord will be condemned. 
Psalm 35: The psalmist prays to the Lord for rescue from enemies, vowing to declare the Lord’s righteousness and praise him all day long.

What does it mean?
We should confess all of our sin to the Lord because he is kind. He will forgive the sins of those who humble themselves and come to him in repentance. The Lord God created everything; therefore, we should not fear anything created but fear the creator alone, thanking him for all that he has given us. The Lord is our helper. The Lord hears the cries of the afflicted who call upon his name for deliverance. We should glorify God on the earth by telling other people what the Lord has done for us. The Lord has forgiven our sin, he provides for our needs, and keeps us from condemnation.

What shall I do?
I shall not harbor sin but confess all of my sin to the Lord; trusting the Lord to forgive all of my sin. The Lord is righteous and just to forgive my sin in Jesus Christ. (1 Jn 1:9) I shall give thanks to the Lord for all that he has done and praise his holy name before men. I shall tell others the good things that the Lord has done for me. I shall point others to seek the Lord for forgiveness of sins and rescue from enemies.
