Abide Together: Reflection on Psalm 31
This psalm of David is a confession of sin and reminder that to us that our lives are not our own, but rather we belong to God. In the midst of David’s sorrow for sin, he reminds himself and reminds us that God is going to ultimately save him, not because of David’s deeds or greatness, but for His own name’s sake. There are often times when I am burdened by guilt and feeling despair over my sin, just like David, then the Scriptures remind me, God didn’t save me because of my merits and he will not keep me based on my merit. He saves me and keeps me for His name’s sake and for His glory, he will finish what he started. Thanks be to God that He will always get the glory and sees fit to use us for His name’s sake.
