By Sabra Dyas | February 11, 2020 |

Brokeness 11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.  Psalm 51:11 It wasn’t that David feared God taking away his presence as much as a plea for more of God. He was ashamed of where his heart had gone, deep in sin. He is filled with guilt and experiencing a broken…

Breaktime: Admit Your Need?

By Sabra Dyas | February 10, 2020 |

Admit Your Need 10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 Creation is bringing something into existence that wasn’t there prior. Which in this passage means David was seeking God to create a pure heart within him. He understood that his heart wasn’t genuine, and David couldn’t purify…

Breaktime: Can’t Ignore It Any Longer

By Sabra Dyas | February 7, 2020 |

9 Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Psalm 51:9 David again uses his words to ask God for forgiveness. His heart is a place where guilt is present and the heaviness of it all is more than he can bear. I love it that he could no longer tolerate sin in…

Breaktime: What are you Hearing?

By Sabra Dyas | February 6, 2020 |

What are you Hearing? Let me hear joy and gladness;  let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Psalm 51:8 The result of a cleansed heart is a joyful heart.

Cleansing Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7 Hyssop is used for cleansing and associated with sacrifice. David trusted God for the cleanup and removal of his dark spot, and the place in Davids life he tried to run from was the very place…

Breaktime: Secret Places

By Sabra Dyas | February 4, 2020 |

 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. Psalm 51:6 God desires our inward nature to be influenced by the wisdom He provides, but we can only do this when we allow the teachings of God to become our truth. Once they are accepted as truth, we, therefore,…

Offending God

By Sabra Dyas | January 31, 2020 |

 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; So you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Psalm 51:4 David understood he was a child of God and knew God could see all and know all. He knew that God was offended when sin is…

Breaktime: No Denying the Truth

By Sabra Dyas | January 30, 2020 |

 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Psalm 51:3 David could have denied his sin; he could have lied about his wrong.  He could have blamed Bathsheba for enticing him on the rooftop. He could have blamed his upbringing. But instead, he owned his sin and didn’t try to justify…

Breaktime: The Conscience

By Sabra Dyas | January 29, 2020 |

The Conscience Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. Psalm 51:2 David is asking God to do something that only God can do. Without God’s inward cleansing, there would be no other way. David could have tried to outweigh his bad with his good and therefore try to ease his conscience. He could…
