This is the very reason that we need a savior and someone to rescue us. The last verse in this psalm says, “Oh that salvation would come out of Zion”. Praise God! Jesus came to take away the sin of the world and redeem us from our destiny of destruction. Jesus took all our sin, sickness and shame on the cross and gave us His righteousness, His holiness, His wholeness in its stead.
Now all that remains is for us to accept that we need a savior and accept Jesus into our lives. When we do we become a brand new creature. We are born of an incorruptible seed and a child of the most high God. We have a new nature that is being transformed into the image of Christ. Because we are born again, we are the righteousness of Christ and our desire is now to do good.
The Lord will create in you a pure heart that will desire to seek his face.
