THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 85-87 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 86:5 5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.
“If you are tired of the load of your sin, Let Jesus come into your heart,” is a powerful invitation song. As I read our scripture for today I am captured by how much God is ready to forgive…all those who call upon Him.
The Psalmist declared, “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.” He recognized a transforming truth for every person that would call upon God: The Lord is ready to forgive the sins of those who call upon His name.
SIN is a heavy burden to bear. Sin fills our life with shame…regret…remorse…depression…dejection…discouragment and more. But, what if I told you there was a way toward hope…healing…wholeness? Would you be interested in laying down the burden of sin? Would you desire to be free of the regret and shame that racks your soul? Would you grab the rope of hope that can pull you out of the depth of depression caused by sin?
Listen to the Psalmist one more time, “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.” God will not ignore the cry of the repentant. God will not ignore the cry of those who ask forgiveness. God is good and abundant in mercy to all who call upon HIM.
If you are tired of the load of your sin…let Jesus come into your heart and forgive you.
Father, hear my cry from my broken heart for I need YOUR grace…YOUR mercy and YOUR love…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
