David sinned willfully, like many of us do
David, like us, was a sinner (Rom.3:10, 23), and he did many BAD things that he had to learn from. David did repent of his deeds. David did NOT lose his salvation. He lost the JOY of his salvation! In his heartfelt prayer after his wickedness with Bathsheba he prayed. Psalm 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. (KJV)
The reason that someone needs their joy restored is because they have lost it. David needed to be restored to his fellowship with the Lord. He had been walking after the flesh and need to make a change in his life. He desperately needed God to “Restore unto him the joy of salvation”.
David had done some abominable (hated by God) acts. Some of them he did knowingly, but there did come a time in David’s life where he could again say: Psalm 119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. (KJV)
Like a lost sheep David went astray, like so many of us! But after all his wicked sins, he was forgiven when he repented, and after that had kept God's Word. May we learn from this!
We can never obey on any power of our own. We must completely deny self. We must look to the cross and SEE Jesus' awesome love for us and why it is that He kept His Father’s commandments.
We, like David must say: Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. (KJV)
This tremendous act of “Creation” could only be performed by the POWER of the Word of God (Gen.1:3,6,9,11,14,20,24,26,29). IF you allow His Word to speak to you and do in you what it says it will do, you can have the victory in Christ Jesus. God has spoken and His Word is True! Christ can and shall work in you in a mighty way. 2 Cor.5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (KJV)
A new creation . . . born again.
Eph. 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (KJV)
The new birth is NOT an evolution process. The new birth is now (John 1:12-13; 3:3-8). To be born spiritually is the beginning of our walk with God. We are as a baby Christian born spiritually into the family of God.
1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. (KJV)
This is NOT something that happens when we become an old Christian. This is the new birth. The beginning of our walk with God. Some will object that we sin if we have been tempted. They believe that temptation is a sin. The Bible does NOT say that. Temptation is NOT a sin! Giving in to temptation is what is sin!
Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (KJV)
We have a high priest who was tempted in all points like us, except that He did NOT sin. God will help us when we are tempted. There was NO sin in any of Jesus' temptations (Mat.4); even though He was tempted by Satan himself! But that old devil could find NO place in Jesus to work upon; nor could he get Jesus to fall for any sin. (Heb.2:18). Some day we will have bodies like Jesus that will NEVER sin again! (1 Cor.15:42-44,48-54; Phil.3:21). Thank You Jesus!
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace . . . to me boldly means with confidence. WHY can we come to God’s Throne of grace boldly? Romans 5:1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (KJV) . . . we can go to God in prayer with confidence and speak freely to Him because we have been justified by faith in Jesus! Justified = just as if I never sinned. Declared not guilty in the courts of Heaven. I can tell Him things that I cannot tell you. He understands me. He knows my every weakness. My dear friend, JESUS IS GOD! I can come to Him in worship and with reverence. I am free to speak, because He is also a Man. He is God, but He is a Man, and I can come to Him with great freedom. I can tell Him what is on my heart. I can open my heart to Him. We must come to Him being open and sincere. We can go to the Throne of grace and plead to either God the Father, in Jesus’ Name, or we can go directly to the Lord Jesus Christ because JESUS IS God! http://www.godcannotlie.org/is_jesus_god.htm
The result of coming to the Throne of grace is . . . That we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need . . . the sure mercies of David, the blessings of the everlasting covenant (Heb.13:20), especially His pardoning mercy, and the fresh application of it daily, and every other blessing of grace that we need. We do have a reason to expect it, since there is mercy with God; and it is with Christ Jesus, as the Head of the covenant, and it is prepared and ready for those that ask for it; and it has been obtained by many, and is everlasting!
We need mercy. And we need a lot of it. Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (KJV) . . . Dear one, we are redeemed by the mercy of God.
Have you been to His Throne of grace today? What did you tell Him? Or did you just demand something? Demanding will NOT get it done! May I say to you, tell Him that you love Him. Tell Him that you appreciate all the wonderful things He has done for you! Thank Him! Confess your sins to Him! You might as well confess them because he already knows what you have done! Go to Him with humility and sincerity. Go to Him with confidence and freedom, talk to Him as if He were sitting next to you. There is mercy and grace to help in time of need.
