Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. – Ps 19:12-13

David knew that no matter how much he worshipped, how much he praised, and how much he loved God, he was still made of flesh. As long as we are made of flesh, we are still susceptible to sin. Our prayer every day should be that God would keep us from sin. We are never immune; but He has already overcome. Pride in our ability to resist temptation on our own will result in a fall; but faithful reliance on Jesus will result in the firm foundation we need to accomplish our destiny.

True humility means understanding you always need God to protect you from sin and deliver you from evil. The most dangerous thought you can have when someone around you falls or fails is, “I would never do that. That will never be me.” As soon as you say it could never happen to you, the enemy has an opening to make you his next target.

Take heart. Jesus has already defeated all evil; and the way we walk out that victory is by trusting in the Cross. God reveals our secret faults so He can cleanse them. No matter how bad it gets, He will make us whole!


Father, I pray that You would keep me from evil all of my days. Cleanse me from my secret faults. Keep me from sin. Protect me, in Jesus’ name!
