I'm going to be honest; I didn't spend time today in the Word until now (10:00 p.m.). When I don't spend as much time in the Word as I should, I usually flip to the book of Psalms. Many of the Psalms are quick reads and great for encouragement. Tonight I flipped to Psalm 130.
"Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
O Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness;
therefore you are feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in His Word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
O Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with Him is full redemption.
He Himself with redeem Israel
from all their sins."
Thank God for His unfailing love. Fear the Lord because with Him there is forgiveness. There is no one else in all the universe worth fearing because God is the only one who holds the key to forgiveness. Wait on the Lord today.
