Read Psalm 130
Lord, if you kept a record of our sins,
who, O Lord, could ever survive?
But you offer forgiveness,
that we might learn to fear you.
Psalm 130: 3-4 (NLT)
This short psalm is meant to encourage us to remember that engaging in God’s presence is a holy journey. There is a righteous way of thinking about coming before God, letting the Holy Spirit search us, that we might be purified. Because we have the Holy Spirit within us, we can always pray in the presence of God, and as we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive them.
