The Psalmist

The blame game is a game everyone of us is guilty of. We would rather blame someone for our wrongs than humbly accept that it came from our inner being. Only God knows, when sometimes we are so blinded by the cloak of self-preservation and face.

Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.  Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:12-14

What are presumptuous sins?

They are sins we commit against God knowingly.

First, we need to know what His righteous standards are and we need to internalize His standards which will be expressed by our meditations and our words.

In  contemplation of the ‘perfect law, enlightening the eyes,’  the Psalmist  falls to his knees as he is appalled by his own shortcomings.  Then beyond that he  feels that, it is not only those sins he is aware of. There are secret sins which no one else knows but himself and the Lord. The Jewish ritual drew a broad distinction between inadvertent–whether involuntary or ignorant–and deliberate sins.

The different types of presumptuous sins perhaps will attract increasingly serious  consequences :

1 Forbidden acts committed which my God-given Conscience has alerted me  to be  sinful. 

2 Going  against the admonition of wise and esteemed friends plus my  own conscience

3.  Leaving my  Christian  education and  upbringing, Christian values and morals to follow my own wayward lusts and pleasures 

4.  when I turn away from God to sin after receiving  most special warning from the voice of God   e.g. by another’s sinful death, or even through a word of knowledge pronounced by a servant of God.

6. I renegade on a vow I made to live a godly life if He answered my prayer and healed me of a warning sickness with short life expectation. 

Be careful for your guilt is more grievous than that of any other man, for you have sinned presumptuously, in the very highest sense in which you could have done so. You have sinned against reproofs, but what is worse still, you have sinned against your own solemn oaths and covenants, and against the promises that you made to God.

You will go on in your lust and in your sins, despite warnings, despite advice, until you perish in your guilt.

A man, who is suddenly tempted and surprised into a sin which is not his habit, but which he commits through the force of some strong temptation, is guilty, but not guilty of presumption, because he was taken unawares in the net and caught in the snare. But there are other men who sin deliberately; there are some who can think of a lust for weeks beforehand and dote upon their darling crime with pleasure.

Reaping from wrong-doing will be accorded  in His time and there is no escape in this life even with repentance and forgiveness of sins. It is to be noted that  what a man sows, he shall reap.  

So be careful little eyes what you see
Oh be careful little ears what you hear

Oh be careful little mouth what you say
Oh be careful little hands what you do
Oh be careful little feet where you go
For the Father up above is looking down on you
O be careful little one what you do.

Your presumptuous sins would most certainly limit the manifestation of God’s power in your life.

    Oh, be careful, little heart, what you desire! I think when the heart is aligned with God’s heart, the outward, fleshly parts of us become much less troublesome. I really enjoyed the photo of the tree sculpture as The Psalmist! Thank you so much for sharing it here today.

    The Bible precisely defines, two types of sin in the human make-up. In the New Testament under the power of God’s Divine Grace… neither sin is essential in the life of a child of God. Thanks be to Jesus Christ our personal Lord and Saviour. Notice I said personal.

    The two Biblical meanings of sin…
    1. The act of sin; violation to the law of God; man’s wrongful action in the eyes of God
    2. The sin nature; inherited from Adam; man’s sinful state of being in the eyes of God

    Sinful acts can be forgiven in Justification by Grace. Sinful acts can be confessed to God “if” Christian’s sin.
    The inherited sinful nature cannot be confessed or forgiven because man didn’t do it or commit it. Therefore the sinful nature can only be removed in Sanctification by the power of God’s Grace. The Bible determines this Divine operation of Sanctifiction to be found in the Spirit’s of “perfected just men”.

    Hey you, whoever you are…this is for you! Yes, I said you!

      Thanks Pastor Rick for your clarification.
      Yes there are two categories of sins. The one that we can choose to commit is problematic and we must know that what we sow we reap and lives can be ruined, and they are built up only by the grace and mercy of God when we call on Him. There are dire consequences for sin in the natural. We sometimes have to suffer for our whole life on earth. Examples are if we ruin our health, marriage, continue to live in sin and kill. The Lord will forgive us for eternity if we come to Him as He promised, but society and our own body may not forgive and we have to live out the consequences in pain. It is not necessary to choose that path or to continue in it.
