I love that God not only redeems and forgives but also enlightens and leads!
Oh Jehovah, I cast my soul on you;
I place my complete confidence in you.
Those who are unfaithful will behave shamefully.
Thank you for binding me to you
and protecting me from my enemies
to keep me from behaving shamefully.
Give me comprehension and respect
for the path you lay out before me;
discipline me to walk that path.
Bend my will to make me stable in trusting your faithfulness
for you are my Delivering God
and I am bound to you every moment of every day.
Because you are ultimate good,
you have marked me to be the object of your compassion
and your kindness from eternity past.
You keep no record of my past sins
nor of the rebellious behaviors that continue today.
You choose to deal with me according to your love for me.
Jehovah is fair and just.
Knowing full well that I am sinful
he instructs me as I walk in the path he has prepared for me.
When I am clueless he disciplines me to do right
and teaches me more of what he wants for me.
He always overflows with kindness and faithfulness.
Christ has met all the demands of the law on my behalf
to present me to God as a faithful covenant-keeper.
Because of your character, O Lord,
forgive my continued perversity.
