The Journey with Ron Moore

Jumping in the Deep End | Psalm 69:1-5

Todayís Passage: Psalm 69:1-5
Key Verses: Psalm 69:1,5

For the director of music. To the tune of ìLilies.î Of David.
Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck . . . You, God, know my folly; my guilt is not hidden from you.

Sometimes the trouble comes from the outside. A person delivers painful blows that knock us for a loop. A circumstance makes us feel like we are in deep waters and canít touch the bottom. Sometimes the wound is self-inflicted, and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Today's psalm is a prayer for deliverance from a self-inflicted wound. David acknowledges that his recklessness and guilt are not hidden from God. He jumped in the deep end. The waters are up to his neck. He calls for help. His ìeyes fail, looking for my God.

You may relate to David when he writes, "I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold." Don't waste your time blaming others or circumstances. Own up to your sin. Like David, your guilt is not hidden from God. Confession is the first step toward forgiveness and rescue.

Father, too often I blame others for my sin. Help me own up to the mess I have made. You know the details. Forgive me and rescue me from the deep end. In Jesusí name. Amen.
