Presumptuous sins



Presumptuous sins



“Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins.”

 Psalm 19:13


 Suggested Further Reading: 




This prayer was the prayer of a saint, the prayer of a holy man of God.
 Did David need to pray thus? Did the “man after God’s own heart” need to cry, “Keep back thy servant”? Yes, he did. And note the beauty of the prayer.

 If I might translate it into more metaphorical style, it is like this: “Curb thy servant from presumptuous sins.” “Keep him back, or he will wander to the edge of the precipice of sin.

 Hold him in, Lord; he is apt to run away; curb him; put the bridle on him; do not let him do it; let thine overpowering grace keep him holy; when he would do evil, then do thou draw him to good, and when his evil propensities would lead him astray, then do thou check him.” “Keep back thy servant from presumptuous sins.” 

What, then? Is it true that the best of men may sin presumptuously? Ah! It is true. 
It is a solemn thing to find the apostle Paul warning saints against the most loathsome of sins. 
He says, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth, fornication, uncleanness, idolatry, inordinate affection,” and such like.
 What! Do saints want warning against such sins as these? Yes, they do. The highest saints may sin the lowest sins, unless kept by divine grace. You old experienced Christians, boast not in your experience; you may yet trip up unless you cry, “Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe.

” You whose love is fervent, whose faith is constant, whose hopes are bright, say not, “I shall never sin,” but rather cry out, “Lord, lead me not into temptation, and when there leave me not there; for unless thou hold me fast I feel I must, I shall decline, and prove an apostate after all.”

For meditation: 
Five ways to lay hold of the power of God against temptation:
Pray (Luke 22:40)
Obey (Psalm 17:5)
Exhort (Hebrews 3:13)
Read (Psalm 119:11)
