Psalm 51 is a raw and heart-rending confession of sin. David has been given a full understanding of the righteousness of God and the wickedness of his own actions, and so he is broken. But David knows the redeeming love of God, and so he prays that God would forgive him, so that the bones that God broke would rejoice in God. He even promises to praise the God who broke him, testifying that in the case of God v. David, God was in the right. David reveals to us the mystery of how God’s discipline brings forth a harvest of righteousness, so as you come to worship today, be prepared for God to break your bones, and be prepared to forever praise Him for it.
