“Preserve me, O God: for in Thee do I put my trust.” Psalm 16:1 (KJV)
Of this Psalm it is written in The Treasury of David that it has been called “The Psalm of the Precious Secret” explaining the title “Michtam of David”. Yet the meaning of the word is not fully known.
However, the secret, even the precious secret is one which is found only in trusting the God to whom David is praying. He is the living God. He is the God of the living. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and all who will trust in Him.
“Preserve me” is request for the keeping hand of God. Does God hear such requests? Most definitely. When God begins a work in you or me He never quits it. Jesus Christ God’s holy Son went all the way to the cross to finish the work He came to do.
Just as there is grace for salvation; there is grace in sanctification so that we might finish our course. Trust in Him. Believe Him and live.
