Psalm 116:1-2 I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
I can well remember the many times in my life I have needed mercy. The Lord is always faithful, not just to forgive, but also to restore. Recall if you will the words of David’s Psalm of repentance (Psalm 51) “…restore unto me the joy of Your salvation and renew a right spirit within me”. (v. 12) Prior to that David asks God to “create in (him) a clean heart.” Let me ask you: do you believe that God can cleanse the human heart from the sin nature? Do you believe that this is his will?
Colossians 3:5 says: 5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry…
Hebrews 10: 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,] and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”
Psalm 51:7 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. The essence of holiness is to come to the end of ourselves and to throw ourselves on the mercy of a loving God who, like the father of the prodigal son (Luke 15) waits upon our return to Him with open arms.
