Those who seek him shall praise the LORD!

For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and he has not hidden his face from him, but has heard, when he cried to him. From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will perform before those who fear him. The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord! May your hearts live forever! Psalms 22:24-26

God will not turn anyone away that seeks Him. No matter what we have done, no matter how bad we are, God is there waiting for us to turn away from our sin, repent and ask Him for forgiveness. Then our sins are forgiven and we will live forever with God.

Sometimes we as Christians will sit in judgment that certain sins are too bad to be forgiven. But which sin would that be? Murder? No, David was guilty of murder when he sent Uriah back t the front line so Uriah would be killed and David could have Uriah’s wife. If God can forgive murder, cannot He forgive all sins? If we put some sins as too bad to forgive then we are putting a limit on Jesus’ death on the cross. We are saying that His death was almost enough, but not enough to cover this particular sin. We are limiting God. Yet God is limitless.

God wants all the afflicted to seek Him. To come to Him and be forgiven. To praise Him.

Have a blessed day,

David

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
