David states the fact that because God knows his recognition of sin, his repentance watered with tears of sincerity, satisfies God, it is enough, as he has earlier pleaded for mercy, which with God is based on Christ’s sacrifice.
Having confidence in God’s Word and His abundant goodness goes far in delivering us from the bonds of despair. The Chinese Pastor, Samuel Lamb wrote. “To suffer is to serve our Lord. Our tears, like His, touch heaven.”
David acknowledges that tears speak a language unutterable by the tongue. Many a wife rules a man with four times her strength with nothing but a tiny tear. God is so aware of the pain tears represent that they are banished in eternity.
In David’s case it took time to get over his fall. Yet he did get over it via confidence in God hearing and caring, and so can you.
