Psalm 130. This passage is deep and hurts. So thankful for His grace and mercy.
1 From the depths of despair, O Lord,
I call for your help.
2 Hear my cry, O Lord.
Pay attention to my prayer.
3 Lord, if you kept a record of our sins,
who, O Lord, could ever survive?
4 But you offer forgiveness,
that we might learn to fear you.
Good gracious. Can you even imagine if we had to approach the gates of heaven with all our unforgiven sins laid on us? That would suck. He keeps a record of *all* our sins. All of them…not just one or two or the big ones…ALL of them. Each and every one…all of them. Why is that hitting me so hard?
I am so unworthy of what Jesus did for me but in His love, He would do it all over again so I could spend eternity with the Father. If I were the only person on Earth, He would still send His Son to die for me. My sins would still be forgiven because I have asked Him into my heart.
God is so good.
5 I am counting on the Lord;
yes, I am counting on him.
I have put my hope in his word.
6 I long for the Lord
more than sentries long for the dawn,
yes, more than sentries long for the dawn.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord;
for with the Lord there is unfailing love.
His redemption overflows.
8 He himself will redeem Israel
from every kind of sin.
