Psalm 6: 1 Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, Lord, how long?
There are very few examples in scripture where anyone cam before God and was not immediately aware of the unfathomable gulf that exists between His holiness and our best intentions. It may seem from time to time that my words appear smug and self-confident. I assure you that is not the case. I’m learning this whole “life” thing as I go, having as many failures as successes. I love the Psalm that says:
Psalm 51: 16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
17 My sacrifice, O God, is[a] a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.
I have come to understand that it is in my very brokenness that God can do His amazing work of “re-creating” in me a clean heart, restoring a “right (eous)” spirit and setting me on the path to His service.
