The Psalmist David wrote in Psalm 51:19 " renew a right spirit within me". How often ought we to cry out to our Father to do the same for us. I don't know what all that David has in his mind when he wrote those words. The chapter speaks of his confession of sin and desiring to be right with the Lord. Sort of lets us see that when we are not right with God, it's not only our heart that is out of whack, but our spirit also.  We oft refer to our spirit as being our moods or an attitude or disposition  we have. For certain when were not right with the Lord , there is an absence of obedience, humility and loving Him. Sin has an effect on our spirit even when were not conscience of it. The sweetness of our relationship with Him is gone and coldness settles in, doubts and little desire to pray, that is talking to Him. Appears to me that considering these and other s effects sin has on our moods that we need to bow before our Lord and seek that same renewal of a right spirit quite often. 

Not only does it cause a separation between us and the Lord, it always hinders the way we get along with one another. We sometimes call these sessions of moodiness as being out of sorts, or bad mood. Amazing how we can defend the right of having a wrong spirit and blame it on others. King David had written earlier in this chapter taking full responsibility for his sin, just as we should  take complete guilt for our spirit when it isn't right. Best way to correct this in our lives is to acknowledge it before the Lord and those we have offended. It's called in the past "Eating Crow" and it is very distasteful and difficult to do, but it has a way of making us more aware of our offensive spirits. 

Lord help us to keep a right spirit toward You and others.
