We are a little over half-way through memorizing and/or meditating on Psalm 51, one verse per week.
Psalm 51:10 (NIV)
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10 (AMP) / for meditation purposes:
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right,
persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.
David realizes the only way to get right with God is for God, Himself, to replace his sinful heart with a new, clean heart. However, David is fully aware how much he needs God’s constant help to keep him from giving into any temptation.
And so do I!
What about you?
- What does a steadfast spirit look like to you? How would it change your choices?
Father, I need You to create in me a new heart. Please help me make choices that reflect loyalty to Your love and faithfulness to me. I want to be resolute in this decision! But , once again, I am aware that I cannot achieve this without Your help. Please help me to finish this year honoring You and Your purposes for me.
