07/25 Psalm 39:8-11
Rescue me from my rebellion. Do not let fools mock me. 9 I am silent before you; I won’t say a word, for my punishment is from you. 10 But please stop striking me! I am exhausted by the blows from your hand. 11 When you discipline us for our sins, you consume like a moth what is precious to us. Each of us is but a breath. Interlude
We are children of God, saved by grace and covered over by the mercies of God. As His child when we sin it weighs heavily upon us. We know our sin, our fate rests in Him and we willingly stand before our Father and take our punishment. But, in Christ we are forgiven, once we repent and turn back to Him we can know the refreshing presence of the Holy Spirit as we walk in freedom. Jesus is our forgiver and our healer and we are called to walk in Him.
