“who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Psalm 103:4-5 NIV
Isn’t it interesting that the Lord forgives us?
If we were to explore this topic of forgiveness, we must come to the realization that our redemption doesn’t come from anything we could possibly do. God does the redeeming, and our effort comes by way of receiving that grace.
He reaches His mighty hands down to us in the depths of that pit, and he grabs us and pulls us up.
The Psalmist, King David, goes on to say that not only do we get pulled up from certain death within that awful pit, but it doesn’t end there. His love and compassion becomes our clothes…there is a warm satisfaction of His all encompassing presence…and within that presence, we are satisfied through and through. We are save, we are clothed in His righteousness (even though we don’t deserve it) and He satisfies our body, soul, mind…our everything.
Are you in need of this salvation again today?
Have you found yourself in a deep dark pit?
Was there a pang of panic?
Did you cry out to Jesus?
Have you experienced the redemption, as He grasps your hand and pulls you up again?
Let God rescue you.
Let Him renew you.
Allow His love to encompass you and satisfying your heart…so that it may be broken completely, shattered, so that He can make you anew.
It’s time to reach up and grab His hand…
It’s time to cry out to Jesus (for some of us, it’s time to do that again!)
Something more to ponder today!
