Psalm 130: HOPE IN GOD'S FORGIVENESS
Have you ever had to cry out to God for forgiveness of your sins? We all have sinned and need that peace and forgiveness that comes when we realize that GOD KEEPS NO RECORDS of our sins - as we cry for mercy from the depths (verse 1)
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD
2 O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.
6 My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Also the waiting time is so hard, as seen in verse 6, as the watchman have to wait for the morning. They know when they see that first light that morning will soon arrive and they can get some much needed rest, so they watch for the morning with great intensity.
Lord help us to WAIT upon You and Hope in Your Word alone.
Thank You Lord for forgiving us when we cry out to You and ask You. Thank You Lord for not being a record-keeper. Forgive us when we keep records against others. Help us to know how to cry out to You and make a difference for others.
