We often struggle to feel like worshiping God, but through the heart of David, God shows us the pathway into His own heart, by calling us to engage all of who we are, in light of all of He has done for us, and all He is to us.
We experience anger and frustration with God when we feel He has abandoned us in our pain and sorrow, but God restores in us a sense of His love and presence when we are honest about how we feel with Him and acknowledge our need for Him.
We struggle with being emotionally honest with God, because we do not want to admit how broken we really are. But David invites us into the honesty that God desires by revealing to us that He can be trusted with all of our brokenness.
It is in his love and mercy for us that God exposes the sins that we try to hide from ourselves and others. This is to lead us to confession of our sin and bring us to a place of God’s forgiveness and wholeness.
