Life-giving Forgiveness

As I take time to prayerfully examine the condition of my heart, Psalm 51 is teaching me about the resurrection power of forgiveness. When did I feel most welcome in God’s loving presence? When did I feel distance from God’s goodness? ¬†Questions like these help me to see the true spiritual condition of my heart and to receive the wise correction I need.

Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being,
and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
~Psalm 51:6 (ESV)

I am so thankful for bright early morning sunrises. They keep reminding me that the all-powerful Creator of the heavens and the earth also creates clean hearts and renews right spirits within those who delight in truth as God does. ¬†Moreover, spiritual renewal and resurrection happen each time my sinful heart receives God’s life-giving forgiveness.

May you and I be taught wisdom in our secret hearts as we seek to understand the resurrection power of forgiveness.
