Psalm 130 “Deliverance from the Depths”

The psalmist writes from the ‘depths.’ His struggle is with sin and yet there is hope. He acknowledges his sin and calls out to God, the only one who can help when sin is our problem. We must learn to do likewise. As the psalmist waits in hope for God to forgive, we come knowing forgiveness is guaranteed and swift for those who look to him as their saviour. Like the psalmist then, we can rise from out of the depths with great Joy and Hope.
