This Psalm gives a great synopsis of the history of the Israelites. But change up the places and titles and it might as well be an account of my life.
For how often have I cycled through the highs and lows of my relationship with God? The seasons I am faithful and drawing near. The times I rebel and crave my own way, only to find that my own way doesn't satisfy. And I cry out to God once again... "Save me." As if I've fallen into a pit that was not my own doing.
And thanks be to God for His rich and faithful love. How amazing His grace and forgiveness to turn from the justice I fully deserve for my rebellion and lift me out of my sin, setting my feet back on the solid ground of His righteousness.
Lord, I am completely undeserving of Your forgiveness, yet ever grateful knowing it is always there. Thank you for so generously offering the riches of Your faithful love. You are the Trustworthy Treasure which redeems me.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
