A Clean Heart
‘Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.’ Psalm 51:10-12
I yearn for a clean heart, a pure heart, free from the blemish and ugly stain of sin. Clean and fresh, pure and holy. I know that just expecting this to happen won’t cut it. Every day I need to commit to keeping it clean. Like taking a shower or brushing my teeth, it is a daily task. But not one that I can manufacture, all I can do is be willing to be in God’s presence and to ask Him to create in me a clean heart. I have to take the step towards God, to confess my sin, to turn from wrong practice and to focus on the things of God. This is a commitment to be in the presence of God. And today I make this amazing passage my prayer:
Lord create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence; and take not your holy spirit from me. Restore within me the joy of your amazing salvation; and give me a wonderful life through your free spirit. Amen!
