Have Mercy On Me O God
Written by: Ricky Spears Recorded by: Ricky Spears
Psalm 51 is David's prayer of repentance after he sinned by committing adultery with Bathsheba and having her husband Uriah killed. We all have sin in our lives because we have a sin nature. Although we don't like to often think about our sin, it is the reason Jesus came and died for us. In this meditation you will identify a specific sin from your own life and then apply David's words to that sin in your life to help you grow more into God's image. Have Mercy on Me, O God.
When I originally began to write this meditation, I was only going to do a few particular verses from this Psalm. As I meditated on it in my own life though, I realized that every line holds life-changing truth that Christians need to seriously contemplate and apply to their lives. A single meditation would probably be more than an hour long though, so I decided to present it in a three-part series. This is the first of those three parts. I am now planning to do more series type meditations that will build and elaborate on each other and allow us to go deeper into the study and personal application of God's Word.
