Psalm 69:5

 
O God, You know my foolishness; And my sins are not hidden from You.
Psalm 69:5

It's no coincidence this Psalm was written by David. Though he is known in the Bible as a "man after God’s own heart", he still had his share of troubles. The Law said kings should not multiply wives, yet David had many brides. One of those he pursued was Bathsheba. He committed adultery with her and then had her husband, Uriah, killed to try to hide this act.

After about a year of feeling guilty and trying to hide his sins, Nathan the prophet told David that God knew what he'd done. David broke down, realizing he'd been caught and, though he could have been executed by Jewish law for his indiscretion, Nathan told him that his sin would be forgiven.

Numbers says that your sin will find you out. If you've been a Christian long enough, you realize how true that statement is. We shouldn't try to hide our sins from the Lord but confess them. In 1 John 1:9, it says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." The confessing is for our benefit because the Lord already knows our foolishness and our sins.

Keep me from sin, Lord!
