“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. For the sake of your name, Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.” Psalm 25:9-11
David knew he had sinned. There was no doubt about that. Lust, adultery, murder, it all was written on his sin ledger sheet. The list was very long. He cried out, “Forgive my iniquity, though it is great.”
Now let’s go back and look at our own list. Selfishness, anger, jealousy, greed, lust, or a whole host of others could be added to our sin ledger sheets. The list is very long. There is no doubt about that.
We say to the Lord, “Forgive my iniquity, though it is great.” When we do, something miraculous happens. The ledger that had been filled up with sins, suddenly gets wiped clean. The page is blank. We start over.
Clean, pure, forgiven. All we need to do is ask.
Lord, forgive my iniquity though it is great.
