Word for Today :
Let’s learn repentance from the Psalmist.

“For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me” (Psalm 51:3).
It’s one thing to offend God in our words and actions, but it’s a different thing how we react thereafter. Most of us are familiar with the sins of king David, involving the wife of Uriah, yet God still regards David as ‘a man after my heart’. We can learn repentance from the Psalmist as we read Psalm 51.
“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar” (Psalm 51:1-19).
In Christ, God is very merciful. Cry to Him in repentance if you have derailed, no matter the gravity of your offence.
Stay connected with JESUS, the Truth, the Way and the Life.
Dear Father, Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me ( Psalm 51:10). In Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen.
Blood of Jesus! Blood of Jesus!
Thank you JESUS for a new day.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
