Purity of Faith
Protect my soul and rescue me, let me not be ashamed for I have taken refuge in You. Integrity and uprightness will protect me, for I have hoped in You.
In this heartfelt supplication for deliverance, King David reveals the secret of his steadfast faith in HaShem. "Protect my soul and rescue me," that is, I will not be put to shame because I sincerely desire to be a "Servant of HaShem." Since HaShem knows that my every desire is to serve Him - He will grant my request.
Regardless of the responsibility of his kingship as well as the many troubles that He endured, King David always kept focused on the purpose of his existence - to serve HaShem with a full heart. Therefore, he knew that HaShem would answer his prayer - "protect and save him" so that he could continuously advance in his Divine service.
In addition, King David realized that the purity of his heart and his upright deeds would keep him on the path of humility. Therefore, he also prayed, "Integrity and uprightness will protect me, for I have hoped in You." Accordingly, not only was he a dedicated servant of HaShem, even more, his good deeds and sterling character were pleasing to HaShem.
The combination of his devotion to HaShem and his spiritual purity assured King David that he would find great favor and compassion in the eyes of HaShem. He was absolutely confident that HaShem would protect and rescue him.
Mussar study awakens our hearts to both strengthen our service to HaShem and purify our souls. May our study of Mussar spiritually uplift us so that all of our prayers are answered. (Based on the commentary of the Ibn Ezra)
TODAY’S IMPLEMENT: Rededicate yourself  to serve HaShem and offer a prayer - filled with confidence that HaShem will answer you.
