Great Joy in Fearing God

What great joy there is in fearing God, trusting and hoping in His redemptive work through the precious blood of Christ!  Peter understood this, as we’ve seen in 1 Pet. 1:17-21.

 

We find these same themes of joy, fear, trust, hope, and redemption expressed by David in Psalm 130.  This is a fitting prayer for all who are learning to stand firm in the grace of God.

 

1 A SONG OF ASCENTS. 

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!

2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?

4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.

5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;

6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption.

8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

 

Seeking, trusting, fearing, waiting, hoping, and rejoicing with you,

Greg
