Cry for Revival Primary Text: Psalm 51:10-12 Additional scripture: Ps. 16:11; Ne. 8:10; Rom 14:17; Is . 12:2-3; 2 Chr. 7:14; Ps. 85:6 “Restore,” etc. Two opposite kinds of experience are wonderfully blended in this psalm—the experience of a conscience-stricken transgressor, and the experience of a believer rejoicing in Divine mercy. Nothing can be more mournful than David’s profound self-abasement and piercing cry for pardon. Nothing can be more calm, hopeful, restful, than his trust in God’s forgiving and restoring grace. He is like one emerging from a gloomy cavern, where no ray of light shone, who does not yet stand in the sunlight, but sees it shining at the cave’s mouth, and knows that a few more steps will bring him into full sunshine. The secret of this blending of opposite experiences is that David is looking so earnestly away from himself to God. In regard to his crimes, he looks not at the wrong done to fellow-mortals, but at his sin against God (Psa 51:4). And in regard to salvation, he does not measure his expectation by anything he can offer to God—repentance or amendment or atonement—but by the infinite fulness of God’s love and grace. David’s prayer is a cry for revival, which the church needs today.
