Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 51:10, “Restore to me the joy of your salvation.”
Why does the psalmist say, ‘restore to me the joy of your salvation’? As we know, it is so easy to take the blessings of salvation for granted; we have had them all our lives. In an affluent society, when all things are going well, and we are at our ease, it is also easy to forget the joy of salvation.
However, things can change in an instant, as we have seen recently with the COVID-19 pandemic. Only one thing lasts for now and into eternity, the faithfulness of God and the joy of his salvation, so freely given to us. Keep that in mind, and your life will be much more joyful in these times.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, restore to me the joy of your salvation, so that I may rejoice, whether I am going through good times or bad because you hold me secure in your loving care. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
