Psalm 130 – Waiting for the Redemption of the LORD

Published May 21, 2024 by Rev. Pete Van't Hoff in Devotions

At Psalm 130 we find the psalmist in a desperate situation.

1 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.

If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.

But from within that desperation, the God who surely has condemned all sin unto death, has provided the rescue from it.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
And in His word I do hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than those who watch for the morning—
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is mercy,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

The LORD God has redeemed His Israel, through the Person and work of His Son, Jesus Christ, who fulfills this psalm. Are you part of the LORD God’s Israel? In Jesus’ name, you are! Let us pray.

Dear Lord and heavenly Father,

Hallowed be Your name! Through the broken body and shed blood of Your Son, my sins have been forgotten. Through the Holy Spirit, Christ’s perfect human life is overwriting the death that still clings to me. May Your will for me take place in the name of Jesus. Amen.
