Psalm 51: 5-7 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Ok, Here’s the Tea! God desires for us to be honest with Him evvvven though He already knows the deepest parts of us! Crazy right!? I can imagine it’s like a parent knowing their child and how they’ll react in a certain situation yet still excited and eager to see their child’s reaction once in the situation. “For He created our inmost being; He knitted us together in our mother’s wombs!” Psalm 139:13 NIV
What if as God was knitting our hearts, He was speaking affirmations over us and teaching us His ways before we entered this earth? He knew every bad choice we could and would possibly make in hopes it would lead to us to repentance.
David found himself there, more than once. So much that he asked God to purge him with hyssop. Hold up! Pause! I’ve found MYSELF there MORE than once! David wanted to be truthful and honest with God in the secret place! It’s easy to be honest in open, but maturity is tested when you can be honest in secret, when you don’t necessarily have to follow the rules. (Hyssop comes from the same family as mint. It’s clean and refreshing. In Leviticus 14 it was used ceremonially to cleanse lepers and their homes.)
God, you see us! For real! You see as we go about our day with smiles, but deep down we may struggle in silence. You see the anger, hurt, and sadness. You see us in our singleness and in our marriages and the brokenness that may be in the mix. YOU KNOW US! So help us know YOU care enough to want to see us Healed. We won’t try and hide ourselves when we done wrong. We won’t grab fig leaves! But we’ll stand and allow our hearts to be bare so you can heal.
