PM#0203 Keep Us From Sin Psalms 19 vs 13

Keep Us from Sin
PS 19:13

Have you ever heard the saying ‘what the other does not know won’t hurt them?’  That though has often used as an excuse for concealing sexual sin, but it could also be a cover up for other problems.

Temptations face us everyday and without God’s help, we may fall into wrong doing which will hurt us, especially if we cover it up.

The Psalmist recognized this in his prayer in PS 19:13 ‘Keep back thy servant from presumptuous sin.’  He invited God’s help because he knew he needed it.  Why not join with me in this prayer.

Father, keep us from evil and sin today, and lead us away from temptation.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


It is very tempting to just not speak up about sin, and there may be many reasons for doing this.  Hiding does not remove the sin.  It is still there.

To remove sin—especially that which has been hidden, or buried, we need God’s help.  The process of clearing deep issues is no fun—but once we do, we find that we are freed from it.  

Perhaps you might have experience being freed from sin.  How does that help you today?  Has it made a difference?

God wants us to be kept from and to be delivered from the bondage of sin.  Luke 4:18
