MAY DAVID’S DESIRES BE OUR DESIRES
Who can discern his errors? Declare me innocent from hidden faults. Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. —Psalm 19:12-14
We surely can be blinded to errors in our lives. But our heart’s desire, as was David’s, is to be declared “innocent from hidden faults.” Surely this is also our heart’s desire as followers of Jesus. We confess and ask forgiveness for the errors we know, but we also ask Him to forgive us for those things in our lives that we do not know.
Our request should be like that of David’s as wall— “Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me!” These are willful and deliberate sins that David is asking our Lord God Almighty to keep him back from. He does not want these to have dominion over him. That surely should be our desire as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcE1di1Wtl0
These requests to our Lord God Almighty would have David “blameless and innocent of great transgression.” This was David’s hearts’ desire so that “the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.” May this be our heart’s desire as well.
Yes, Dear Father, may these desires that David had be my desires as well. May this be by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. Yes, so may it be so! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QANH8MWuyaE
