Psalm 6: A Grief That Leads to Repentance

Psalm 6

Have you ever felt frail? Troubled? Weary? Weepy? Weak?

Yeah, me too.

Have you ever looked at your circumstances and thought, “I did this to myself?” “I have no one to blame but me?” “I deserve to feel this way?”

Yeah, me too.

Here is the beauty a life that belongs to Christ – there is forgiveness. Freedom. Redemption. Restoration.

David knew that he was deserving of God’s rebuke and discipline. He felt the guilt of his sin deep in his bones. He was grieved clear to his soul.

And, yet, he ends his prayer with the confidence that the Lord has heard and accepted his prayer. That it would be his enemy, in the end, who would experience trouble and shame.

👉 My takeaway – that I should feel a deep conviction over my sin. It should trouble me greatly to know that I have displeased or angered my Heavenly Father.

👉 But that sorrow of soul should not lead to shame but to repentance knowing that God is faithful and just and will forgive (1 John 1:9.)
