A Clean Heart

Psalm 51:10-12 God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not banish me from Your presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore the joy of Your salvation to me, and give me a willing spirit.                                                                                                                                                 v.6 Surely You desire integrity in the inner self, and You teach me wisdom deep within.                                  v.17 The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit and humbled heart.

Heart. It is all about Heart! Our life with Christ is not at all about outward appearances or what we are doing for Jesus but what is on the inside, what is in our heart!  What is on the inside? Integrity? Wisdom? Joy? My quiet time today says that David went from overwhelming remorse (from his sins) to overflowing joy (a restored relationship)! What about the sin in my life? How many times do I ask forgiveness for my sin without remorse? I pray God would quicken my spirit, that I would not become so calloused to the things around me but that I would be sensitive to my sin. Sin robs our joy! Sin robs our fellowship. I am thinking about the “little” stuff. The impatience, the anger, the laziness, the disrespectful attitude… the list goes on and on. I pray that we all would know the overflowing joy that comes from a clean heart before God! We are born sinful.  (v. 5) May we realize on a daily basis that nothing good dwells in us (Ps. 53) and that only by the blood of Jesus are we privileged to be called a child of God! Everday Lord, Create in me a clean heart.
