Read: Psalm 130:1-4
The Psalm is written by King David of Israel. It is referred to as "A Song Of Ascent" because, many scholars at the time believe that the title indicates that these Psalms were sung by worshipers as they traveled the road to Jerusalem to attend the three pilgrim festivals. The Psalm expresses deep sorrow for sin and asks God for help and forgiveness. God is our only source of forgiveness for those who wait on him.
It is a delightful and privileged feeling to believe that relief is on the way from heaven. When we cry out to God in time of need, we expect quick answers. We forget that he is never late. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
We call upon God in times of sickness, pain, depression and mental health. We should be thankful that God does not respond on the basis of our worthiness. If he did, we would receive nothing but judgment. We are a sinful people but regardless, God is our refuge and he responds just by calling our on his name. He forgives us for our sins so that we can worship him with a thankful heart.
We pray for the sick and the needy. We ask for relief in the morning Lord. You promised that the storms will come but that you will be with us to ride over the waves. Wait on the Lord, He will send you relief in the morning, amen
