Wake Up! I woke up this morning with this Scripture in my heart and on my lips! “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence And do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10-12
Powerful Prayer! What a powerful prayer for us to pray! I challenge each of us to pray this prayer and mean it! Just think of what could happen to and through your life, if you would take the time to pray this prayer with the expectation that God will be faithful to respond.
Create in me a clean heart, O God! God has to do it, because we cannot do it for ourselves. If we are going to have a clean heart, it is because God comes into our lives and does for us – what we could never ever do for ourselves. God wants to forgive and cleanse us, so that there is absolutely nothing that gets in between us and Him. He does not forgive and cleanse us because we deserve it. He forgives and cleanses us because He loves us and because we ask!
Renew A Right Spirit Within Me! We cannot have a right spirit, until we have a clean heart. When God cleanses our heart, the next step is a right spirit. When our heart is clean, we can expect God to renew a right spirit and a right spirit changes everything!
Do not cast me away from Your presence! I have no desire to step away from God and His protecting and blessing presence. I need Him to deal with my sin, so that I don’t have to be chased away by His holiness.
Do not take your Holy Spirit from me! I have tried to do life by myself and have made the discovery that I can’t! I need God’s breath of life breathing in and through my life. I don’t even want to think about having to do life without His Holy Spirit breathing through me!
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation! I don’t deserve to be saved and in a right relationship with God, but I am thankful that He loved me with such an awesome love. A love that motivated Him to send His only son Jesus to do for me what I could never do for myself. Through my belief and acceptance of Jesus I am free to live in the power of a right relationship with my Creator and Sustainer and I have the joy of His salvation flowing to and through me!
Take some time to pray this prayer and let its power change your life!
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence And do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and renew a right spirit within me.“
