Psalm 51:10 (KJV) Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Do you spend time in God’s presence praying, singing praises to the Lord, and bowing before Him? These are things that each of us benefit from. How are you doing alone with God? Do you feel too macho or too proud to bow or sing to God? If that’s the case then look with me at a real man in the Old Testament.
The psalms of King David are words that still give us direction and hope. David was a man who knew his own sinfulness yet was able to say Psalm 51, verse “10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit”
God wants you to know you are welcome and valued before His presence. The joy you find in His presence each day will help you stay tuned into the Lord’s desire for you. Worship and prayer will remind you of how great and holy God is. You’ll gain a new appreciation for how gracious God is to forgive you and allow you into His presence.
Point to ponder- When was the last time you prayed and sang to Jesus? If it’s been a while, try it. You’ll experience something very special. You’ll continue the process of being transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.
