Jehovah Will Not Reject a Broken Heart

Jehovah Will Not Reject a Broken Heart

Psalm 51 was written by David after the prophet Nathan called attention to David’s grave sin with Bath-sheba. David’s conscience struck him, and he humbly confessed.2Sa 12:1-14.

David had sinned but spiritual recovery was still possible

51:3, 4, 8-12, 17

  • Before he repented and confessed, his conscience made him miserable

  • He suffered such agony over God’s disapproval that he felt like a man whose bones were crushed

  • He longed for forgiveness, spiritual recovery, and the joy that he had previously experienced

  • He humbly begged Jehovah to help him develop a willingness to obey

  • He was confident of Jehovah’s forgiveness
