GOD’S MOTIVATION FOR SURFACING
THE DESTRUCTIVE PARTS OF US IS SO
WE WILL FACE THEM AND COOPERATE
AS HE UPROOTS AND HEALS THEM.
O Lord, have mercy on me. Heal me, for I have sinned against You (Ps. 41:4).
See how distressed I am! I am in torment within, and in my heart I am disturbed, for I have been most rebellious. Outside, the sword bereaves; inside, there is only death (Lam. 1:20). But thank You that I can be assured You will never forsake one of Your children crying out in agony over sin.
Lord God, lift me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. Set my feet on a rock and give me a firm place to stand. Put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to my God! Blessed is the one who makes the Lord his trust (Ps. 40:2-4).
