QT – Psalm 130

Vs. 1, “Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD.”  This psalm is a penitential (sorrowful) psalm and the eleventh of the ascent Psalms.  This time it was not the sins of others (Plow on the back)…rather the realization of the Psalmist own sins.  What an honest introspective look into what brings us into the pits of life in the first place.  But we are reminded of God not keeping a record of sin to those who turn to Him.  I really needed this reminder today, Praise God!

Regarding application…Our Failures, God’s Faithfulness.  Vs. 7, “O Israel, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.”  I wish that I didn’t make so many mistakes in life.  I wish I was failure free in all that I do, so I don’t bring grief and sadness to others.  Thank goodness for God’s unfailing love!
