The Hairs of My Head

In our Psalm today, David laments that his sins are as the number of the hairs upon his head. The thought is overwhelming.
Jesus says that the very hairs of your head are all numbered and He says this in the context of showing His watch care over His people. He knows us intimately.
If we put these two things together, we shall find rest for our souls. Our sins are many, as many as our hairs but the Lord knows them every one and fully forgives them, every one. He knows them all so He does not leave any sins left uncounted, undealt with, unpardoned, not cast away, nor remembered against us. He deals with them all.

So, do not get stuck in lament for your many sins but rather give thanks that through the death of Jesus and the grace there offered, God has forgiven every single one.
