This is a sad Psalm of woe and disobedience.
I can, you can, we always can turn back to the Lord. No matter how far we have drifted, God will meet us when we turn back.
The Lord is the prodigal God who will run to us once He sees us turn toward home!
I realize, too, that I can always come home to the Lord no matter where I have been. Recognize, repent, return home… that is God’s road to renewal and salvation.
Oh, Lord, thank You for the open invitation.
Search me and know me. Show me my wicked ways that I might be clean before You and useful to You. My desire, Oh, Lord, is to act justly and do what is right (3). For that to be so Your Spirit needs to be alive in me and given full reign to guide and direct me. Come, Holy Spirit, fill me that I might be spent for Jesus. In His name, I pray. Amen.
