Renewing Our Spirit Even During The Most Difficult Times“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10)

I love reading about King David, especially his psalms. Today, as I read in Psalm 51, I stopped to meditate on verse 10. King David asks God to renew a steadfast spirit within him. This is a spirit that isn’t easily shaken; a spirit that allows only God’s truth to guide it; a spirit that can’t be moved, regardless of what is going on around it. It is a confident spirit that allows God’s word to be the final authority.

It is just what I need today–a reminder to trust God no matter what I face.

We live in times that are exciting, challenging, and sometimes frightening. Many days have unknown elements, but each moment is cemented in the palm of our Father’s hands.

It is comforting to know that like David, we can seek God to renew our spirits, to give us the courage to face our day head-on and to trust that He will get us through. When our lives are filled with uncertainty and when we have to learn to go with the flow of our limits, we should remember to celebrate the strength that God has placed within us. The Lord will never fail to uphold us and help us.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the examples left by those who have gone before us. Help us to remember that You provide everything we need to live successfully this day. Amen!!!

I also have been enjoying the psalms lately, especially those David wrote.  I can sympathize with him.  He was a man after God's own heart, yet he was much like us. human with many weaknesses.

I love Psalms, David showed us that although he was imperfect, and committed sins, he also did not let his pride get in the way, he repented always.  We as humans have much weakenesses and God knows that..and he knows that we can always count on His forgiveness.  What an awesome God we serve!!!  Have a blessed day Sis!!!hugs
