CAST ME NOT AWAY
MAIN TEXT: Psalm 51:11, NASB: Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me
.Psalm 51:12 NIV:Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
This psalm opens with David’s plea to God to show him mercy. He asks God to blot out his transgressions, wash his iniquities, and cleanse him from sin. David longs for a renewal of the joy of his salvation.Only the child of God feels the pain of the Lord’s discipline.
Those who have dwelt in the sunlight of his love shiver in the cold darkness of his displeasure. If all you have known is darkness, how can you miss the light you never had? So to pray like this is a sure sign of spiritual light. Spurgeon says that if Only a true Christian could pray like this. An unbeliever won’t care about being cast away from God’s presence because he was never close to God in the first place.
An unsaved person won’t care about losing the Holy Spirit that he never had anyway. The ungodly flee from God’s presence and hide from the Holy Spirit.
GOD LOVES AND RECEIVES THE BROKEN HEART
