December 13th – Psalm 51:1

Psalm 51:1

David committed horrendous sins against God. Sins others might find unforgivable. The conviction was heavy on the mighty king of Israel. And the pain he felt knowing the hurt his sin caused God, brought him to his knees. It was there on his knees where David confessed his wrongdoings and begged God for forgiveness. And you know what? Because of His never ending forgiveness, love, and mercy, and David’s repentance, God did just that. And He promises to do the same for us. No matter how big or small the sin, when we come before Him with a “broken spirit and a contrite heart”, confessing all our transgressions, we too will receive God’s forgiveness. Our God is an awesome God! When we return to Him in true confession and repentance, He is faithful to wash away the filth in our hearts and cleanse us with His loving grace. Better still, God will renew in us an unmovable and unshakable spirit dedicated to Him alone!
