(Psa 51:10 NKJV) Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Oh, a CLEAN heart.
Think of how beautiful and clean God is. Nothing about Him is bad or wrong; He is perfect in every way. Wow, how I long to just have one minute go by where everything I do is right within that minute.
Sometimes it seems so hard to do and say the right thing even in just a short period of time. It can be so discouraging at times. It makes me feel so awful and weak at times.
But I know that God is doing a work within all of us and it doesn't happen overnight. Sometimes it takes time for things to get changed and other times it happens quickly. Cleaning the heart is one of the biggest and longest processes there is; everything comes from our hearts.
(Prov 22:15 NKJV) Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
Understand that we are God's children and if we want this stuff driven far from us, we must let Him correct us, teach us, mold us and train us.
The heart is what we need to focus on. The love of God will help us clean things up and get things right if we go to Him, and those that He leads us to, to get counsel and advice from.
It's a process and it can take some time, so don't get discouraged...but be encouraged as we embrace God's correction for us!!
