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.
This Psalm acknowledges the fact that we sometimes feel like we are drowning and without hope. The Psalmist says he puts his hope in God's word. This is not just the Bible - it is God's message. God's message of love, and promise of faithfulness.
Lord - help me to put my trust in who you are - in your message to me. I am loved, you care, you will never abandon me.
