“1Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.”
Mrs. Gumble commented on these Psalms, “ This is a great psalm if you’re feeling bad or have failed or made some terrible mistake. There is no self-justification in this psalm.
We need to take responsibility for the mess in our lives, with no excuses, and let God clean it away. It is also a great comfort to know that David, who had sinned so badly, was forgiven and was described as ‘a man after God’s own heart’ (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22).
