David discovered that God’s anger and our sin do not go well together,
There is no soundness in my flesh
Because of Your anger,
Nor any health in my bones
Because of my sin.
For my iniquities have gone over my head;
Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
Notice that David had bodily problems because of both God’s anger and David’s own sin in which he was drowning. He could not carry the weight of his sin.
David knew that he was the problem and God only did the righteous thing. Therefore, David confessed it to God and He responded with forgiving mercy.
Do you speak as David in prayer?
