Cleansed

Psalm 51:10-12

Create in me a clean heart, O God,

    and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Do not cast me from your presence

    or take your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation

    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Storms are a precursor to cleansing and renewal. When Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us from our sin, the earth shook and the rocks split (Matthew 27:51). In the midst of our storms, and the burden of our sin, may God’s indwelling Spirit remind us of Christ’s sacrifice to cleanse and purify our hearts. He hears His children’s prayers for restoration and healing, and answers with His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
