I have been considering these particular psalms quite often lately, especially in light of the beginning of the sermon series on Ephesians.

God chose me

I am forgiven in Christ

I don’t have to understand it

I need to trust and obey Him.

 

Psalm 130

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

1 From the depths of despair, O LORD, I call for your help.
2 Hear my cry, O Lord. Pay attention to my prayer.

3 LORD, if you kept a record of our sins, who, O Lord, could ever survive?
4 But you offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear you.

5 I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him.
I have put my hope in his word.
6 I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn,
yes, more than sentries long for the dawn.

7 O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is unfailing love.
His redemption overflows.
8 He himself will redeem Israel from every kind of sin.

Psalm 131
A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.

1 LORD, my heart is not proud; my eyes are not haughty.
I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp.
2 Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself,
like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk.
Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me.

3 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD— now and always.
