Psalm 6:9 The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer.
One of the issues that we have to deal with in our spiritual life is to remember that God is merciful and full of grace. This means that when we confess our sins God is faithful and just and forgive us our sins. He remembers them no more. The problem is often that we don’t forgive ourselves. We don’t walk in that forgiveness. David sinned greatly against the Lord and he paid a high price for his sin. Yet he knew, that when he confessed God could be trusted to forgive, to show grace. David had the confidence in the Lord’s promises of grace and so should we. No matter how far we have fallen God’s grace will lift us up!
