Psalms Meditation – July 16

“Create in Me a Clean Heart”

Read Psalm 51:10-19

If sin brings us to our knees where God can forgive us, mercy puts us on our feet again so that we can praise God and witness to his ways. Guilt brings us low, but forgiveness lifts us high.

PRAYER: I want more, Lord, than just to be relieved of the burden of my sins; I want a new life–a life that participates creatively in your work int he world, a life that shares healing, reconciling, and praising, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.

By Eugene Peterson, “A Year with the Psalms” p. 64
