7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior.
What a blessing it is to know that I can call out to the Lord and he hears my cry. In my humanity of sin he does not keep himself from me. When I turn to him and confess my sin, he does not turn away, but extends his scared hand to me in help. When others would reject me, he does not, for he is my savior whom I seek with all my heart.
Father, As I cry out to you, please be merciful and meet me. I come to you with all my heart and I seek your forgiveness for my sins. They are ever before you, and me, and though I stand in shame before you now, you do not turn your face away from me. Thank you for your mercy that allows me to come to you and find your help.
God you are my savior, thank you that when I seek you if find your gracious mercy that renews my life. Help me live today in the light of your kindness to me.
