John Owen – I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait – The Forgiveness of Sin

John Owen’s exposition and application of Psalm 130:5,6

Having been raised out of his depths by the discovery of forgiveness in God, yet not being immediately made partaker of that forgiveness, as to a comforting sense of it, he gathers up his soul from wandering from God, and supports it from sinking under his present condition.Establishment in waiting, when there is no present sense of forgiveness, yet gives the soul much secret rest and comfort.

I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait
