Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 50 – 52
Verse of the Day: Psalm 51:10 – “Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me.”
David wrote this Psalm after his affair with Bathsheba. The man after God’s own heart had grievously sinned. And now he records his deep-seated prayer of repentance to his God. David, the man after God’s own heart – both before and following his sin – knew that he needed the forgiveness and restoration that only God could provide.
In verse 10 – 12, he cries out for God to create a new heart, renew a steadfast spirit, not cast him away, remove the Spirit of God, and to restore him. Not just for himself, but then he can teach others the way of God and bring others into reconciliation with God.
Today, where do you need to call out to God for forgiveness and restoration?
Prayer: Today, create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me. Amen.
