Devotion based on Psalm 6

There is a new Devotion up this morning based on Psalm 6, the first of what is know as the penitential Psalms.  It is one of those Psalms that causes us to take a deeper look at the shape of our repentance.  In Psalm 6 David is weak, sheds tears, and cries out, His fear and sin cause him distress.  If you have ever felt like you were not sure you were going to make it, that your body might shut down, or if you ever lost a day(s) to fear, David identifies with you.  If you pay close attention you can learn from a man who committed scandalous public sin and brought so much pain to himself, his family, and others as you watch him pray through his grief to find assurance of God’s love waiting for him on the other side.  Grace, mercy, and peace to all of you in Jesus Name.

  1. This is a direct word to me today. Yesterday, I went into that shutdown mode and “lost the day”. I had to go into a shut down and just sleep. Today, the LORD has awakened me afresh and anew. Ps 30:5b “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Ps 139: 17-18 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, oh God. How vast is the sum of them!
    18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand
    when I awake, I am still with you.
    The Lord is always standing there with his arms wide open. Ready to take us back into his fold and carry us on his shoulders.
