Re: Verse reading–Psalm 51; 1 John 1:9 (Day Two)
Restore to me the joy of your salvation Psalm 51:12. Look back at the words that pertain specifically to David’s sin: blot out, wash away, cleanse me. Such vivid imagery creates a landscape that we can all understand. This picture of a broken man, not a king, but a man caught in sin. We can relate. But what is astounding is not the picture created of David’s sin-nature, but the hope of restoration. All of these terms deal with a renewal. To be brought back to a former relationship. Sometimes when we have sinned we cannot imagine how we can be forgiven much less how we can be brought back to a right relationship with the Almighty. But hear David’s cry, once he has confessed his heart longs for the Joy of His Salvation. What a beautiful thought, to be made clean again with the same life and strength as that first time you prayed. Don’t let the weight of your sin cause you to buckle, His joy is still waiting for you. He is faithful, He is just and His burden is light.
