Why did God forgive David?

David was a man after God’s own heart. He loved God, but like most of us, he made mistakes and sinned. What made David different? When he messed up, he truly was sorry he had a contrite heart. David was filled with a sense of guilt and the desire to be forgiven by God.

David, a shepherd boy, grew up to be King of Israel. As King, he prayed and asked God to forgive him for sinning. If we are rich, poor, or middle class, we all need to repent our sins to GOD. It’s not what words we choose when we pray. It’s our motives and the condition of our hearts. Do we have a contrite heart like Davids? Is it filled with remorse, sorrow, and guilt? Do you love God and desire a relationship with him? Read Davids’s prayer below from the New King James version. Then read it from the Message Bible. Same prayer different styles. Pray today to ask for forgiveness for your sins. He will hear you and answer your prayer. 🙏

“Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭51:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Generous in love—God, give grace! Huge in mercy—wipe out my bad record. Scrub away my guilt, soak out my sins in your laundry. I know how bad I’ve been; my sins are staring me down.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭51:1-3‬ ‭MSG‬‬

❤️ God Bless
