[1] The backstory of Psalm 51 helps us understand — why we fail and mess up!


Psalm 51 (NLT)

For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time Nathan the prophet came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.


  • “Why” Reason #1 — Losing God’s for our life is often at the heart of wrong and costly decisions! (Proverbs 29:18)


  • Why Reason #2 — Selective is a costly, wrong-track decision!


  • Why Reason #3 — Being relationally  increases our bad decision-making odds!


  • Why Reason #4 — Bad decisions often happen because we don’t “!”


[2] Psalm 51 gives us the – process for a full recovery and fresh start!


  • Recovering is always -based!



Psalm 51:1 (NLT)
Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.


Romans 9:16 (MSG) — Compassion doesn’t originate in our bleeding hearts or moral sweat, but in God’s mercy.


  • Recovering is always -based!



Psalm 51:2-6 (MSG)
Scrub away my guilt, soak out my sins in your laundry. 3 I know how bad I’ve been; my sins are staring me down. 4 You’re the One I’ve violated, and you’ve seen it all, seen the full extent of my evil. You have all the facts before you; whatever you decide about me is fair. 5 I’ve been out of step with you for a long time, in the wrong since before I was born. 6 What you’re after is truth from the inside out.


  • Recovering is always -based!

Psalm 51:7-12


  • Recovering is always -based!


Psalm 51:13-18 (MSG) — Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home. 14 Commute my death sentence, God, my salvation God, and I’ll sing anthems to your life-giving ways . . . 18 Make Zion the place you delight in, repair Jerusalem’s broken-down walls.


Romans 11:29 (GW) God never changes his mind when he gives gifts or when he calls someone.
