Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
You know if you have been walking with a clean heart or one filled with negative tendencies influenced by mortal mind— the enemy. You know if you have been doing right by the Lord. Or if you have been more concerned with having things your way. You know if you have been negative, unloving, deceitful, misleading, manipulative, conniving, or untrustworthy. Just as you know if you have been attracting drama to your life.
You either want a joy-filled life or a complicated and miserable one— which do you choose? There is no other way to bliss than through God. There is no other solution than to surrender.
Get your spirit and heart right by seeking out God. Ask for a renewed life. Look deep inside and ask yourself if this is the way you want to live your life forever, or do you want better?
It’s about choice. We choose to live a certain way, treat ourselves and others a certain way. We choose what we consume. We choose to entertain thoughts and turn them into actions. We even choose to be entitled, expecting God to make things right in our lives, when we haven’t made any positive strides to changing our life for the better.
We give in to temptation by the enemy, then blame the enemy for the choice we made. You have options. Your discernment is your responsibility. Your choices are your responsibility.
Do you believe that God can provide your needs? Do you believe He can change your thinking and how you feel? Do you believe He can heal you from your pain? Are you ready to stop having a conditional relationship with God? Are you ready to live a life of empowerment and not entitlement? Are you ready to live on purpose? Then ask, without doubt or worry, and watch God work in and through you.
Father, I want my heart, mind, and spirit to be right by You. Clean my heart of the clutter I created. Pull out the pain, hurt, anger, envy, and jealousy. Help me to see and embrace the lessons, and move forward.
Remove from me the desire to want what I don’t need simply so I can feel good for short bursts of time. Renew my spirit so that I may walk like Your son Jesus. Tune my hearing to hear You clearly, above all others. I want to always discern and follow Your voice. Turn me towards Your light Father.
No more lies, games, manipulation, fear, hate, and confusion. Let me see Your greatness and let that guide me where I need to be daily. Leave what I did and what I experienced yesterday in the past. Let my yesterdays and yesteryears be my past, and let me walk with my head high in the present. That I may see a glorious future. In Your name I humbly pray. Amen.
