Psalm 51:10-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
And sustain me with a willing spirit.
We must come to a place where we value the presence of God above all else.
He needs to be the foundation that the rest of our life is build upon.
When we allow Him to be the cornerstone, we allow Him to be our strength.
As we place such a high value on how close we are to Him we will be filled with the joy that He naturally brings.
- Has there been a place in you life you have not valued the presence of God?
- Is there a place in you life you need to surrender to restore the close proximity of His presence?
- If so:
- Ask God to forgive you.
- Now ask God to draw you back to a place where you value His presence in that place in you life.
