Chapter-a-Day Psalm 51

Shattered God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. Psalm 51:10 (TM)

Interesting that Asaph’s Psalm about his reaction to David’s affair with Bathsheba is followed immediately by David’s psalm of repentence after his affair with Bathsheba.

God is a God of new beginnings. He specializes in shaping chaos (even man-made chaos) into new creation. He takes the shattered and fractured pieces of our life and makes something completely new out of them which honor Him.

In David and Bathsheba’s case, his name was Solomon and became one of the greatest kings in history and author of three books of the Bible.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 51”

  1. Scrub away my guilt,
    soak out my sins in your laundry.
    As a father of small kids, I am very familiar with trying to get stains out of clothes. This morning it struck me how sin can stain our lives. God stands there over the sink, scrubbing…….thinking, “when will that Kevin ever learn?”. Its humbling to know how personal our God is to us.
