“Out of the depths I call to You, Yahweh! Lord, listen to my voice; let Your ears be attentive to my cry for help. Yahweh, if You considered sins, Lord, who could stand? But with You there is forgiveness, so that You may be revered. Israel, put your hope in the Lord . For there is faithful love with the Lord , and with Him is redemption in abundance.”
Psalms 130:1-4, 7
From my deepest trouble, I cried out to the Lord. The author of this Psalm, Solomon understood deep trouble. Though he started well, his time as king was not necessarily kind to him. He understood what it meant to cry out to God and he unerstood what it meant to be rescued for his calamity, regardless of WHY he was in trouble! He makes the observation of God’s mercy that if God’s attitude toward us was based on our inclination towards being sinful that ALL of us would be doomed! He goes on to point out that God is rich in forgiveness and love.
We thank You, oh Lord for being so kind and loving towards us even when we sin! Thank You for Your mercy Lord!
