“Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD. If Thou, LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared” (Psalm 130:1, 3-4).
One of the reasons that the Psalms are so loved and so often read is that there is an understanding of how difficult life could be and how faithful and powerful the Lord is. Today we find the Psalmist crying to the Lord and confessing the enormity of his sin and rejoicing in the magnitude of God’s forgiveness. Mike spoke to his friend and acknowledged “Where would we be without the Lord?” He and his friend had been talking about the Lord’s great mercy and His precious forgiveness. “I never knew how special forgiveness really was until I received God’s forgiveness. It has changed my life!” Mike said as they drove on in the company truck.
For today: How about you? Do you know the joy of being forgiven? You can!
