Is Your Heart Singing or Sour?
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:6 KJV)
David made this statement after realizing how bountifully God had dealt with him when he was so undeserving of any goodness from God.
Mankind naturally deserves punishment and death at the hands of God for his innate sinful condition.
However, God is a god of love and mercy and willingly took upon Himself the consequence of sin which man deserves. Through God’s unmerited favor man can receive the gift of grace from God.
David’s heart sang out to God.
My heart sings out to God for his unmerited dealing with me.
If you have contemplated the nature of sin at work in you, the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, and invited the presence of God to dwell inside your heart you also intimately understand the eternal goodness of God and his bountiful grace in dealing with you.
