From today's Psalm 51, we have the response "Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned" and the verses ". . . my sin is before me always: 'Against you only have I sinned, and done what is evil in your sight.'" So God alone is in our way, for we sin against the Lord only! This is a basic important fact to realize. The only way for God to be for us is we stop offending him. Another important truth we must reckon with. There is not another way. So be smart, obey the Lord and make all your problems with sin evaporate.
