Impartial Grace: Psalm 69

For Yahweh hears the needy, and doesn’t despise his captive people. Let heaven and earth praise him; the seas, and everything that moves therein!

(Psalm 69:33-34, emphasis added)

David is complaining and seeking God’s resolution to a myriad of problems. Disquieting thoughts overwhelm his day. He is discouraged. His problems are long-suffered and his mistakes often repeated. He is burdened by his responsibility and by knowing his worthlessness. David confesses his sins to the Lord. He examines all his folly and puts his sin before God. This song turns to praise. The Lord is the Maker of all that is the earth and are the heavens. God created all the creatures in the sea. The Lord’s love will reach to all of His creation. Praise God for His unwavering affection and care for His children. The Lord meets the needs of all, especially those who have the greatest need. The least will become the greatest. All creation will rejoice. All creation will be reconciled to the Lord. This is Impartial Grace.
