A WILLING SPIRIT

Psalm 51:12 says, "Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me" (NIV).

I also love this portion of the prayer of David, "...grant me a willing spirit..."

God could grant us a willing spirit!

He did not need to force us to accept His Precious Gift. He did not need to force us to love Him. He did not need to force us to repent, to come to Him, or to acknowledge Him as our Savior, Lord and Father. He did not need to force us to comply whatever condition He had demanded from us.

He could grant us the willing spirit!

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
