I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgement for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness v9
His indignation, I will bear
For I have sinned against the Lord
My heart cries out, in feeble prayer
Until He comes to plead my cause
True judgement, He will not withhold
To bring from darkness into light
His righteousness I shall behold
When blinded eyes, receive their sight
Who is a God like unto Thee
Thine anger thou dost not retain
But pardoneth iniquity
To turn in perfect love, again
Mercy and love, is Thy delight
Thou wilt subdue iniquity
And sin, though blacker than the night
Wilt banish, in the deepest sea
Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. v 18-19
This past week, the thought that 'God delights' ... in lovingkindness, mercy, righteousness and judgement, has been brought before me several times. In Jeremiah 9, Psalm 51, Micah 7 and today a hymn. I really need to meditate on that and let it sink in. This is a wonderful passage of Scripture. My feeble thoughts detract from the rich meaning but for some reason, I felt compelled this evening, to attempt to put it into verse.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
