Open My Lips, And My Mouth Will Praise You

King David had a strong relationship with God. He wrote songs about worshipping Almighty and giving him praise. Even when he had sinned with Bathsheba, he wrote Psalm 51 and begged for mercy, forgiveness and cleansing. He knew that God wants a right relationship with Him. The whole chapter is David crying out to God so his heart could be back to the rightful relationship he had before. Men, if and when we sin, we need to confess it to God. Let Him restore us and make us whole again. I love verses 15-17 where David wants his song back. He says, O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. You do not delight in sacrifices, or I would bring it; You do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. God wants our relationship restored by us turning from our sin. To get our song back, we must look at sin the way God does. Be broken about it, confess it, turn from it and sing again. Men, if for some reason there is not a song in your heart, ask the Lord for Him to reveal the sin and then confess it. He will restore You and I. He is faithful. Trust Him with your heart. Have a blessed worship day in the Lord.
