Create, Restore, and Sustain
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right 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 sustain in me a willing spirit.
Meditate on these phrases, written in this Psalm of David, when the prophet Nathan came to him, after some of his worst decisions and actions.
Specifically, what do you ask God to create in you today, and to restore and sustain in your life?
