Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7
Hyssop is used for cleansing and associated with sacrifice. David trusted God for the cleanup and removal of his dark spot, and the place in Davids life he tried to run from was the very place David needed hyssop. This cleansing was used more on the outward wounds but also for the inward work of purification. He knew God could cleanse.
We have a place to go with our sin, and whether we go to God or not is an individual choice. If we trust God with our sin and know he can adequately cleanse us, we quickly come to him. But if we think God will pick up the rock
and stone us, it makes it impossible to trust him. We can gauge how well we believe God by how we trust God with our sin.
We all need a cleansing; there is no doubt, and we can’t do it. We need a Savior who can cleanse us from all the inward spots of our darkened ways. Thankfully, we no longer have to carry the dark ideas around with us but can be washed and made white as snow. Friends, we can’t do this apart from His cleansing.
