Have Mercy On Me, O God–Psalm 51:1-2
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to Your unfailing love;
according to Your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
God loves a humble and contrite spirit; a repentant and humble person. The psalmist cried out to the Lord, “Have mercy on me, O God” and he was delivered. Our God is a loving, forgiving God. He is quick to forgive and slow to anger. Whatever has happened in your past, is over. Whatever heavy burden you’ve been carrying around, let it go. Don’t bring it in to your bright and promising future. God is making all things new in your life. Today, go to Him with what’s been worrying you or holding you back. If you desire it, He will wash away your iniquities and cleanse you from all your sin (v 2).
