Psalm 51 is a Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?" (Jeremiah 17:9) David has realized that what the prophet Jeremiah said and fell on his face before God. Isn't it a beautiful thing when Scripture confirms Scripture? Everyone can (and should) do this when they realize their brokenness and desperate need for a Savior.
God has given us His word to teach us what to do. Why do we often times pray to God asking Him to show us His will or tell us what to do when we haven't followed the instructions already given in scripture? Sin, being so prevalent, seems to lose importance. However, sin keeps us from seeing God's will. So the next time you are battling sin, think about what you are giving up if you do sin.
Davids Harp David was a master musician, a poet, a writer of psalms, a worshipper and a man after God’s own heart. This cute craft will serve as a great reminder of the life of David. A lowly shepherd boy chosen by God to be the king of Israel.
