Make me to hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; let the bones which You have broken rejoice.
— Psalms 51:8 (AMPC)
Monday, July 24
In Psalm 51, King David recognized the importance of confessing his sins and repenting, which sets in motion God’s purifying and restoring work in his life—as it does in ours. May we consistently open our ears to God’s joy and forgiveness. This results in a satistying life, full of healing and rejoicing!
