In Psalm 38, verses 1 through 8, David writes, “O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage! Your arrows have struck me deep, and your blows are crushing me. Because of your anger, my whole body is sick; my health is broken because of my sins. My guilt overwhelms me–it is a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and stink because of my foolish sins. I am bent over and racked with pain. All day long I walk around filled with grief. A raging fever burns within me, and my health is broken. I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart.”
David’s grief in these verses is really hard to read about. I can identify with his remorse at having let God down in some way, I have been there myself. I have never suffered to this extreme that David refers to, but I have certainly been filled with remorse.
We have to remember that God is forgiving of us and that he will have mercy on us if we show contrition and humbly repent of our wrongs. Sometimes we have to live with consequences that our actions set in motion in the past, and go forward dealing with these negative outcomes.But we have to remember that God is there for us no matter what, and he and Jesus will lead us out of the mire of our own negative consequences if we pray to them for guidance.
When I interacted with God and Christ using a legal substance over a few years it seemed to me that they both want us to live in the present, forgiving others and ourselves for all wrongs and transgressions. They seem to both live in the present moment and want us to as well, grasping for the positive aspects of present reality than living life with our faces turned to look behind us.
