Lenten Devotional – Day 29

Lent 3David knew to Whom he was praying.

What we believe about God’s character plays a huge part in our walk of faith with Him.

In Psalm 51, David’s Psalm of repentance, David lists several of God’s qualities.

  • God is merciful“Have mercy on me, O God…”
  • God’s love is unfailing“ because of your unfailing love…”
  • God is compassionate“Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.”
  • God is our judge“You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just.”
  • God desires honesty (Truth) – “But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me wisdom even there.”
  • God purifies us from sin“Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.”
  • God forgives“Don’t keep looking at my sins. Remove the stain of my guilt.”
  • God is present with us through His Spirit“Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.”
  • God’s salvation brings joy – “Restore to me the joy of your salvation…”

What other truths about God do you see in Psalm 51?
