Read Psalm 130


Read Psalm 130

130 From the depths of my despair I call to you, Lord.
2Hear my cry, O Lord;
listen to my call for help!
3If you kept a record of our sins,
who could escape being condemned?
4But you forgive us,
so that we should stand in awe of you.
5I wait eagerly for the Lord’s help,
and in his word I trust.
6I wait for the Lord
more eagerly than watchmen wait for the dawn—
than watchmen wait for the dawn.
7Israel, trust in the Lord,
because his love is constant
and he is always willing to save.
8He will save his people Israel
from all their sins.

Think

Verse 5: "I wait eagerly for the LORD's help, and in his word I trust."
This Psalm is about sin - "If you kept a record of our sins, who could escape?" (Vs 3).  But it rests in the hopeful promise of forgiveness.
But God does not just forgive, God restores.  This restoration takes time.  And so we wait - with all creation for restoration.

Pray

Your love is constant.  You save your people from their sins.  I have sinned and I have been the victim of a sinful world.  I know that you O Lord can heal and restore.
