Abiding in the Vine
Just as soon as Satan robs you, gets you away from abiding in that vine, your joy goes. You become a prey to your adversary and you have no strength. The devil cannot stand the joy of the Lord because the Lord dwells in the midst of the praises of Israel. And the devil hates that.
Psalm 51:12-13 says, “Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways: and sinners shall be converted unto thee.” Now David had gotten away from God in this respect. He was not abiding in the Lord. He had done some terrible things and was in an awful condition and in awful bondage. The joy of the Lord was gone. David is wounded and grieved, the joy of the Lord has fled and this whole chapter is a prayer of repentance and crying out to God. Note that there is a need for cleansing, and in verse 10 he says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God.” Any time you get away from the abiding presence of the Lord the enemy comes and defiles. More
