Simply put, Psalm 130 is a call for help, a cry for forgiveness, and it is all about waiting for the Lord in hope. Read the Psalm and be refreshed in God’s promise of unconditional, unfailing love and full redemption.
Surely God hears our prayers even without our asking. Why do you think the Psalmist speaks to God in this way? What benefits might we receive by asking God to listen to us?
In Jesus, your sins are not just forgiven, but wiped out, forgotten, erased. How does this truth affect how you live your life? How does God’s grace change your relationships with others?
What does it mean to wait for the Lord? Have you experienced a time in your life of waiting for the Lord? What did you do while you were waiting?
What does it mean to put your hope in His Word? What are some other scripture passages that testify to God’s love and faithfulness?
Meditate on Romans 8:31-38. What does verse 37 mean to you?
