Verse of the Day (October 20, 2020) #BMSeminary – As a corrective for his sinful nature, David petitioned God for inward renewal of his heart attitude (v. 10), preservation in service (v. 11), and restoration of joy (v. 12). He was aware that he had become indifferent in his attitudes so he needed renovation. He was also aware that Saul was removed from the kingship for his sin (signified in the OT by the departure of the Holy Spirit), so David asked that God not take away His Spirit and depose him too. In the New Testament the Spirit does not leave believers; at the moment of salvation He indwells them (cf. John 14:16; Rom. 8:9). But a Christian may be cast aside from service because of sin (cf. 1 Cor. 9:27). David was also aware that in order to experience the joy he once had in his salvation, he needed God’s inner spiritual renewal. [Bible Knowledge Commentary]
