Discussion for Psalms 51:11

  • MockingBird for verse 11
    David was a man after God 's own heart and when he sinned he was broken because he knew he did wrong in God 's sight for having Uriah killed so that he could have Bathsheba for his wife to cover his sin in the sight of the people. When I try to cover my sin myself I get into it deeper. When I sin Holy Spirit withdraws Himself because He cannot be manifest where sin is, Repentance is a gift of God I believe and when I confess and repent from the sin done I believe I am cleansed and forgiven That does not mean that I am free from the outcome of the consquences of the sin done. Every disobedience receives a just reccompence of reward. The sword was against David 's house till his death.
  • David is clearly pleading to God not to remove him from His presence. David desires to remain in Gods presence and recognised that the Holy Spirit had left him and with this he asks God to 'renew 'a right spirit, the Holy spirit within him. David presented his sin before the Lord because he knew God was the only one who could help him with this. If we we desire to remain in the presence of God it must be on His terms as we live to serve Him.
  • My opinion on this verse is David was offering a prayer for killing and committing adultery. Pleading with God not take away his Holy Spirit due to his falling away. Jesus paid the price for us but if we live in the flesh and willfully sin God Holy Spirit will leave.
