What Have I Seen

I know what I have seen. What have I seen? How can I explain it? I have seen…I have seen…I have seen with my spiritual eyes, I have seen. With the orbs in my head I have seen things my intellect has told me I have seen, though on occasion not accurately. Knowing matters I know, I’m hoping with a sure hope, events yet to come.

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!

     O Lord, hear my voice!

Let your ears be attentive

    to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

[I deserve nothing from You my Lord. There is no good in me of my own that I can claim deserves your attention. You alone are all good. In Your goodness You show mercy. It is Your merciful goodness for which I cry out to You.]

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,

    O Lord, who could stand?

 But with you there is forgiveness,

    that you may be feared.

[O wretch that I am who deserves only to kneel before You in judgement, Your perfect and righteous judgement of condemnation. I depend only on Your mercy and promises of your word. In Your goodness You bring me willingly to continued repentance.]

 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,

    and in his word I hope;

[In waiting is my expectation. Your word is my deliverance.]

my soul waits for the Lord

    more than watchmen for the morning,

    more than watchmen for the morning.

[As the watchman know the morning is coming, so my hope is knowing You are faithful.]

O Israel, hope in the Lord!

    For with the Lord there is steadfast love,

    and with him is plentiful redemption.

[Israel = the name means “one who wrestles with God.” I have wrestled with You many times O Lord. I have learned through Your stubborn love, peace comes by trusting You. Trust comes by remembering the many times You have redeemed me from my circumstances, from myself.]

And he will redeem Israel (ones who wrestles with God)

    from all his iniquities.

[you who wrestle with God be still, and know He is God!]

Amen!

~GW
