A Sinner standing before God
When we fully see our sin, it shakes us to the core. Sin's selfish, grotesque face is painful to behold. It seems to be the last thing we'd ever want to bring to our God, who is pure and glorious beyond comprehension. Yet the psalmist boldly seeks to do just that. He knew by experience what every single one of us must personally discover: God perfection is the only sure place we can turn to when in personal despair over our sin. Our sin deserves God's judgment, but instead perfectly finds His forgiving grace. Experiencing God's forgiveness then elevates our awe and reverence for Him.
Keep your hope in God when failure seeks to crush you and leave you alone and alienated from Him. Because of His perfections, He will not cast you away. He will perfectly forgive all who come to Him in humble repentance.
