Joy of Salvation

Ps 51:12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

 

Remember when you first realized that God really loves you and Jesus gave His life so your sins could be forgiven and you can have eternal life with God?  You were filled with the joy of God’s salvation.  Do you still have that joy?  It takes a willing spirit to sustain that joy.  A willing spirit is only maintained through prayer and the reading and meditating on God’s written word, the Bible.  If we do not continually feed on His Word, we will slowly starve our spirits and our willingness, our desire for God’s salvation will become cold.  Joy is a good barometer of our spirit’s health.  When we loose our joy in God it is of our own doing.  Let us stay connected with that joy by staying in His Word and in close communion with Him through prayer.
