The scripture for today is Psalm 130, KJV.
"OUT of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive yo the voice of my supplications. If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his words to, I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord, there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities."
This is the full Psalm. It stands alone. There is no know writer. It flows like a Psalm written by David. It shows us the character of God. It gives us truth and hope.
The Psalm starts with the writer asking for the attentiveness of the Lord in their life. God knows each of us and what we need. It may not be what WE want. God makes sure we are not in "want" of things we don't need.
The question arises as to who or whom shall stand and be held accountable under the Law. The answer is no one by their own merits. Only from God, can redemption come. Only from God, can mercy be given. Only by God, could Jesus had been raised from the dead. Think about that.
So, as the psalmist did, we wait for the Lord. We put our hope in Jesus. We give our lives to Jesus. Willingly. We are told God has "plenteous redemption" for all who call upon his name. Be grateful we have a second chance God who loves us above all measure.
Lord, help me to turn to You when I struggle. Lead me to keep You in my heart as I go through this day.
