Meditate on This Message From Bishop Macedo
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.” Psalm 51:10-11
David asked God four things:
1) Create in him a clean heart, that is, a heart without malice, evil intentions, deceit, pride, vanities, carnal inclinations, etc.
2) Renew a steadfast spirit, because his attitudes were not that of a dignified, honorable and sensibleperson, after all, he acted cunningly to hide his adultery, and the worst, projected the death of an innocent person.
3) Not casting him out of His presence, which meant not rejecting him for his iniquity. He knew that the Presence of God in his life had made him king of Israel and given him many victories over his enemies. Without God, his title of king was useless.
4) Not taking the Holy Spirit from him!
David was aware that his true wealth was not his gold… His greatest wealth was the Spirit of God.
David was aware that his true wealth was not his gold, his silver and his precious stones; nor, the conquered lands, its palace and its army.
His greatest wealth was the Spirit of God; which came upon him on the day the prophet Samuel anointed him with holy oil. If he lost Him, he would be nothing but a mere spiritual beggar living in a palace, with a king’s crown.
