    "Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me." David was a man after God's own heart, and he walked perfect before God all his days; except in the matter of Bathsheba. He was mightily filled with the Spirit of God from the day Samuel anointed him in the presence of his brethren. These words are God-inspired for all who seek forgiveness, reconciliation and restoration.

    I feel the whole purpose of this psalms is to understand that our spirit has to be broken and truthfully sorry. The Most High God loves a broken spirit this because your allowing him then to come in and do the work. The transformation starts with understanding what you have done wrong, begin to allow The Most High into our lives, daily fast, pray, Watch, read, love, and live.
