The Joy of Salvation

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Do not cast me away from Your presence,
    And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
    And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

(Psalm 51:10-12)

As we were singing these verses from Psalm 51 at our city jail on Tuesday night I was reminded of a sin from my past. I started feeling bad about that sin and out of the blue the Holy Spirit spoke to me and asked me this question: "Is it under the blood?" I am not sure that I can express the overwhelming joy that arose in my heart at that moment. The joy of God's salvation comes when the Holy Spirit speaks to us reminding that we are forgiven.

Pray the words of this wonderful psalm with me today.. lay your sins and mistakes at the cross.. and listen for that inner voice of His Spirit speaking words of forgiveness and wholeness.
