“Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation” (Psalm 85:7, ESV). The psalmist’s plea for God’s deliverance continues, with an appeal to the Lord’s “steadfast love”. God’s graciousness, not human worthiness, lies at the center of redemption. Our petition should mirror the psalm, a cry for the abiding and unfailing mercy of God to lift us up in our hour of need.
How marvelous is the steadfast love of the Lord. In all our sins and troubles, He is our help and deliverer. Lean upon His grace, looking to the cross of Christ our Lord, as you persevere through the trials of this life.
