What Do You Want?

“What Do You Want?” – Rev. Benjamin Wines

Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
While I kept silence, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
My strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
Then I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not hide my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And you forgave the guilt of my sin.
Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you.
You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble.
Many are the torments of the wicked,
But steadfast love surrounds those who trust in the Lord.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous,
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart.
From Psalm 32

Questions for Further Reflection:

In this passage, Satan offers Jesus alternatives to God’s plan.
What are the things in your life that can distract you from God?
And how can Christ’s struggle help you stay focused on God?
