In Psalm 130, the psalmist is concerned about offenses against God and the need for mercy But with God there is forgiveness and nothing can separate us from His love. This is demonstrated with the gift of His son. God is always with us and because of that, so is hope.
Like the psalmist, there are times in our life that we are in the depths of despair but God’s character should have an effect on our attitude. There is grace, power, and hope as we prayerfully wait for the day of freedom; freedom from despair, from hopelessness, from fear, and captivity.
There’s a video I came across about some lab chimps that for thirty years never saw sunlight until one day their time came when they were free to go out for the first time. Enjoy the video All Things Are Free. 🙂
Our hope is in the promises of His Word and the waiting only makes the relief and comfort more appreciated when received. So let us stay on target even during difficulty; humbly staying on God’s path and like the psalmist in today’s passage, diligently praying to be set free.
