Position of the Heart

The Sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

– Psalm 51:17

You need this.
I need this too.
A reminder of how big God is.
That no matter what situation you are in, or what struggle is staring you down, He is big enough to handle it. It doesn’t matter how messy your life is, or what you have done; He is big enough.
The hurts in my story would not have found healing if I hadn’t been real with God about the pain I felt. That’s why this song strikes a chord in me.
David even got it. A guy, the King, in the midst of his mess wrote this…

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. – Psalm 51:17

He understood what God wants, what He desires. In a time when animal sacrifice was the instructed practice to restore right standing with God, David understood restoration required something deeper.
David understood the value of honest and transparent conversation with God.
And he knew God was big enough to handle anything brought to Him.
Life is messy. It’s hard. But my God, the One who spoke everything into existence, is big enough.
It doesn’t matter what you are facing, what you have walked through, it will never be to messy or big for Him.
