Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. 2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. 7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. 8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities. Psalm 130:1-8
NUFFSAID! Nah, seriously! Ok, let’s take a closer look and see what The Psalmist is telling us. In a nutshell, it’s praying time! It’s time for us to be honest with our selves and real with our Heavenly Father! If we really want GOD’s help, we gotta know that He’s not sitting upon His Throne with a hammer waiting for that unknown number of your sin to drop and then smash thru the heavens and crush you. #HONEST2GOD! God’s LOVE for you IS exceedingly abundantly above and beyond humanity’s capacity to comprehend! TRUTHBTOLD, GOD IS MERCIFUL 2 HIS OWN FAULT! (4 lack of a better word!) He is INFINITELY BENEVOLENT AND HE IS INCLINED TOWARD MERCY!
When we call out to HIM, out of the sincerity of our broken hearts, convicted by our disobedience, asking HIM to forgive us, it provokes The Compassion of our Great High Priest, moving Him to intervene and intercede on our behalf! Can you see JESUS extending His Nail-Scarred Hands to The Father of All Grace and Mercy as a reminder that He was wounded for our transgression, bruised for our iniquities, and the chastisement of our peace was placed upon Him, and by HIS stripes we were healed? CAN U BELIEVE THAT HE FORGIVES US, REMOVES OUR TRANSGRESSIONS AS FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST AND RESTORES US BACK INTO RIGHTFUL FELLOWSHIP and RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CREATOR AND SUSTAINER OF THE AGES?
#WOW! #DIDJAHEARDAT? Good God Almighty! I BLESS GOD BCUZ FAVOR AIN’T FAIR, huh? Who wouldn’t serve a GOD LIKE OUR GOD! AIN’T U GLAD THAT FOR THOSE WHOSE HOPE RESTS ANCHORED IN THE FAITHFULNESS OF THE LORD ALONE, THERE IS AN ABUNDANCE OF MERCY AND WITH HIM IS PLENTY OF REDEMPTION!
#AWEMAAZIN! BUT THAT’S THE GOSPEL’s ETERNAL TRUTH!
NAH, LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY ‘I KNO MY REDEEMER LIVES’!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
