Why you can have confidence in God!
Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Psalm 143:8
David wrote the above Psalm. It is a beautiful and heartfelt prayer that we should all pray regularly for ourselves. David was a godly man but not a perfect man. He had flaws, struggled with sin and had many moral failures in his life. While he was well known for slaying a giant named Goliath and had many great military victories as Israel’s King, he also had times in his life when he was morally bankrupt. He carried on a secret affair with Bathsheba and later had her husband killed in an attempt to hide his own sin. The consequences of his sin were devastating and tragic but David discovered a truth that would restore his soul and give his life purpose and direction again; we see that truth revealed in this Psalm.
David desired to hear every morning about God's unfailing love for him. God's love was his source of trust and faith and it gave his life purpose and direction. It also enabled him to surrender himself to God and His will. David, in the midst of his personal pain and moral failures, discovered that God would not abandon him nor turn His back on him. David’s sins of adultery and murder didn't stop God from loving him. In fact, it was the revelation of that truth of God's unfailing love for him that would ultimately restore his faith and purpose and enable him to live a life of total surrender to God's will.
I pray we all discover what David discovered. No matter what failures we have faced in our life, just knowing that God's love for us is unfailing will produce the exact same result as it did for David.
If David saw the value of hearing about God's unfailing love for him every morning, shouldn't we?
