Does it seem your heart is tatooed, indelibly, with sin?

Forgiven  |  July 23

…forgive all my sins.
Keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You.

Psalm 25:18, Psalm 25:20-21

Father, when King David asked you to forgive all his sins, he meant all. That includes thoughts and actions of every kind which he knew displeased You.

We too, Father, have committed sins of every imaginable type. There is no way we cannot be ashamed but we know from other references that David trusted You to remove his sins from him as far as the east is from the west, never to be remembered against him again.

We sometimes feel our sins are too indelibly marked upon us to have them  removed by Your simply saying so. Yet, if that was not true Your mission would have served no redemptive purpose.

That fact being accomplished, in the case of a repentant believer, we too can say, “let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You”, unburdened and without blemish. Help us today to understand Your expectations better and better. Sanctify us we pray, in Jesus’ name, amen.
