Psalm 51:10 ” Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

I listened to a song the other day…its title a declaration that a lot of us might not say with any conviction…”I am ready for the Storm.”  Now I realize that it’s not if but when trials will come into my life…but to proclaim that I’m ready for them gives me pause.  So how can I prepare?  The Psalmist here shows us that it’s the daily renewing of our heart and mind that will enable us to do this.  Our faith is renewed and given new life daily…ever-deepening, ever-increasing,  as we put more and more of our trust in the Lord.  This divine restoration is spoken of in Isaiah 40:31, ” But those who put their hope in the Lord will renew their strength.”  So I may not like it, but I can now say with certainty… Yes Lord, with Your help, I’m ready for the storm.
