Daily Devotional: October 20, 2023 – Psalm 51:12

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. – Psalm 51:12

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Let’s ponder on the wonderful promise God gives us in today’s verse – Psalm 51:12: “Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.” We all experience tough times, like an endless winter where joy seems buried under the frost. In these moments, the delight that we once found in God’s love may appear to fade, but this is a natural part of our journey.

Yet, the glorious news is that God, like the rising sun after a long night, always stands ready to breathe warmth into our cold moments, to bring back the joy that has been hidden under the snow of our struggles. His arms are open, longing for our return, ever ready to uplift our spirits and help us bloom once again.

To press on in our celestial journey, we need a strong spirit that is eager and ready for every trial that comes our way, much like a river that continues to flow despite the obstacles it encounters. God promises us this spirit, a force that drives us forward against all odds.

Try to recall a time when you fell, felt disoriented, and lost. Now, imagine the feeling of finding your path again, restored and stronger than ever. That’s the joy of God’s salvation; it’s like stepping into a sunlit meadow after emerging from a gloomy forest. It’s a joy that invigorates us, propelling us forward, even when the path looks challenging.

My Prayer

Dear God, help me to find joy in your salvation once again. In times when I feel lost or confused, remind me of your ever-present love. Bring me back to the warmth of your embrace, just like springtime follows a long winter.

Grant me, God, a willing and eager spirit. As a river continues its journey, no matter the rocks in its way, help me to keep going forward as well. May your spirit within me be that driving force that pushes me along, even in difficult times.

After every fall, let me rise stronger, knowing that you are always there to catch me. And when I do rise, may I remember the joy of your salvation. Like walking from shadow into light, let that joy motivate me and keep me going, no matter what comes my way.

In your holy name, I pray. Amen.
