Description Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your anger toward us to cease. Psalm 85:4 (NKJV) As I ponder this verse I think that maybe it is not so much that God needs to turn from his anger as that we need to turn away from our sins. Many times in life the pain and trials that we encounter come from our sins. The trials will not end until the sins go. Our dilemma is that we need to turn away from our sins, but only God can turn us. A preacher once said that To turn a heart to God is as difficult as to make the world revolve upon its axis. The key to this conversion is realizing that we cannot turn ourselves; we need to pray to God to change us. To turn to God in continual prayer for help is the first step in turning away from sin. In this way the Psalmist prays to the God of all salvation to restore blessings to his nation. The God of Israel who was so rich in forgiveness and favor to His chosen people was the same yesterday, as He is today. Mark Lawrence, Psalm 85:4 Painting with Light, VerseVisions, 2008.
