Oh God, Restore Us!

RG AUDIO 012712Psalm 60

Have you ever been angry at someone? Has anyone ever been angry at you? I know that may sound like an obvious question, but stop and think about it. No matter how angry you may have become, or how angry someone has become with you, how can it compare to the anger of a holy God toward those who willfully turn away from him–those who do not fear him. By “fear” I do not mean “being afraid” of God: I mean not respecting him.

David knew that truth all too well. God’s anger had shaken and torn the land. That is why David pleads to God, to “restore us” (v. 1).

We all get angry from time to time, sometimes we have a good reason and sometimes not. One difference between God and us is that he always has a good reason. Another difference is God’s willingness to forgive us when we ask him in genuine sorrow for our sin. He will restore us and make us new. No one else can do that.

Let us call upon God, he will forgive us.
