Though parents love their children this love can often run contrary to God’s agenda for them. But when we recognize how we have been formed by a broken love, we can begin to understand how our love for our own children needs to be redeemed.
The ultimate hope of the believer is to experience resurrection. Once we receive our new resurrection bodies, we are going to live in those bodies with God for eternity in a new physical earth. Until then, God invites us to experience a foretaste of his nearness and power in our present lives.
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.
