Day 31 in 40 Days of Joy

Title: Regaining the Joy of Our Salvation

Scripture: Psalm 51:12 says,

“Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.”

Main Idea: We can lose the joy of our salvation, but God can restore it.

More: The background of this Psalm is David’s sin with Bathsheba, and the subsequent sins against Uriah. Because of his sin, David had lost his joy, and he wanted it back.

Has sin stolen your joy? We think sin will make us happy, but its pleasure is always short-lived and leads instead to misery. Repent today of your willful sins and ask God to restore your joy.

Faith and Worship Declarations: I choose to repent of my sins and as a result I have the joy of salvation.
