A Clean Heart

We know that the enemy prowls about the earth seeking to destroy us. One way that he does that is by getting us to harden our hearts toward God. That sounds like a drastic, conscious action on our part. But it can be more subtle. Sometimes the hardening of our hearts begins simply by not turning to Him when we face temptation. The pride that says, I can resist on my own without God’s help, is the pride that hardens us and turns us away from God. So we must regularly seek His help, His grace and His mercy. It’s not just a once and done act. Everyday, we must fortify ourselves in the Spirit. Everyday, we must fall on our face before Him. Everyday, we must accept Him as our life and breath.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore unto me the joy of Your salvation
And sustain me with a willing spirit.
Ps 51:10-12 (NASB)
