Communion with God and Our Preservation through Him - Saturday, February 1st

Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You. Psalm 25:20-21

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Psalm 25 (which we have been looking at all week) was written by David, king of Israel in Old Testament times. He was preceded by King Saul, the first king of Israel, who was anointed with the Holy Spirit to help him serve well as Israel’s king. Because of great disobedience the Holy Spirit was removed from him and given to David. The anointing of the Holy Spirit was a unique thing to king Saul and king David. David did not want to end up like king Saul and have the Holy Spirit removed from him. After a time of great moral failure king David said to God (as recorded in Psalm 51), “create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence and do not take your Holy Spirit from me.”

Today’s Scripture is a prayer of David asking God to preserve him as the Holy Spirit anointed king of Israel. King Saul and king David being anointed by the Holy Spirit is similar to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that is ours as Christians under the New Covenant. The Holy Spirit was removed from Saul, but this will not happen to us as Christians. Ephesians 1:13 says, “having also believed (in Christ for salvation), you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” The Holy Spirit could have been removed from David, but God answered his prayers (like in Psalm 51 and here) and preserved him as the Holy Spirit anointed king of Israel.

While we cannot lose the Holy Spirit, we still need to pray that God will preserve us to the end so that his purposes are fulfilled in us. The same Holy Spirit who anointed king David and accomplished amazing things through him is the same Holy Spirit who can accomplish amazing things through us. The same Holy Spirit that transformed, led (Acts 13), and empowered those early disciples in the book of Acts so that they impacted their world in amazing ways, is the same Holy Spirit who is at work transforming, leading, and empowering us to impact our world in similarly amazing ways.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, “Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You.” Here I am. Take me and do amazing things with my life through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. Grant that all the way to the very end (preserved), I “live fully” for you, for the sake of the Gospel, and for the advancement of your kingdom. Amen!
