For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"– and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
God is faithful to press his heavy hand on us when we harbour any sin. Such a loving Father, who disciplines his children for their benefit! And His intention is clear: to Forgive our Guilt. This is the incredible Grace of God in Jesus. The absolute removal of our debt, by the Eternal payment of Jesus at His crucifixion.
Let's not take lightly the "kind" suffering of God's heavy hand, nor God's faithful determination to free us from sin, nor Christ's full and final payment
