Day 28 | Zak Calloway

Psalm 50:3-4 “Our God comes and he will not be silent. A burning fire goes ahead of him. A terrible storm is all around him. He calls out to heaven and earth to be his witnesses.”

These verses inspire me. Not simply because of the majesty and glory of God (even though just that alone should) but also the knowledge that as God is present and even as he arrives, power is there. Change and wonder is happening all around us and God is a part of it. The entirety of his creation is moved and shaken as he comes. That sounds supernatural and mystical, but I think we can see this supernatural in the day to day, so long as we’re willing to search.

I also want to highlight quickly verses 8-15. We don’t give God all we can because he NEEDS it, but because we need to be the ones to GIVE it. Just a great reminder for us!
Psalm 51 was written by David after the prophet Nathan confronted him about his sin with Bathsheba. Most of the chapter displays a deep (very Calvinistic, hehe) lament of his depravity and while I definitely identify with this lament, I want to highlight verse 10:
“God, create a pure heart in me. Give me a new spirit that is faithful to you.”
I feel myself constantly praying a prayer very similar to this and craving that closeness with God. Often times, in song:
So easy to fall back
I lose my grip oh so fast
But even through the trials
Your love it always last
Keep my feet on the path
Keep my feet on the path
Hold me close
Don’t ever let me go
I am yours
You Have All My Life
I need your spirit
I can’t make it on my own
I am yours

You Have All My Life
