Even mature followers of Jesus sometimes fall into sinful behaviors and practices. The good news is that even in our weakness God is ever present and ready to forgive and cleanse us. All we need to do is to be humble before God and beg for his intervention in our lives. The psalm for today offers us a helpful formulation to approach the Lord.
Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
and of my sin cleanse me.
Never, ever be afraid to call upon the Lord. He will hear your prayers and will make you whole!
