“I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning” (130:5-6). The psalmist knew that even in times of failure, with the Lord there is “plentiful redemption” (v7), from our sins and from our troubles. Instead of rebellion and pride (Ps 129), God’s people cast themselves on Him and ask for mercy. “But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared” (v4). Whatever our situation, “out of the depths” (v1) we can cry out to the Lord.
“O Israel, hope in the Lord!” (v7). Our hope in God will not be disappointed; He always forgives, always heals, always restores.
