Cleansing the Heart
Ever have those times when it seems like nothing good is coming from you?Maybe your not like that and have to problems like I do, its a blessing if you don’t.
Its like days start bad and progressively get worser and worser and thus changing my entire disposition from what was once ok, to not so pleasant, to down right intolerable.
Its at the end of it all and there seems to be no way to clean it up or go back to the beginning and start over. Its like wanting to go in and deep clean but looking at the desbrie and not even knowing where to begin to clean up.
I just stand there looking at the mess that I made and having to decide one of two things. Clean up or turn around and leave it for another day. I choose to clean if its not but starting where I stand and begin to work my way through the murk and mire of a mess that is within my heart at times.
And God, who knows the heart, testified to them giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He also did to us; and He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith.
Acts 15:8-9 NASB
The clutter that conjested my heart was from not guarding like I was suppose to. Gods word tells us to guard our heart with all diligence for from it flows the issues of life.
What flowed from me revealed to any hearer I have issues of life that need to be cast upon the Lord and not harbored inside. Somethings, I admit I expend too much of myself giving time and energy in vain.
By faith in Jesus He is the extra cleaning step within my heart. To keep his word at heart is to keep it free from clutter. Why else would He proclaim to take His yoke upon me and learn of Him…
He wants me to walk in things like He did. He walked in the fruit of the spirit and in full knowing of who he was as a person in the deity of his royal priesthood, as well as, still not allowing the troubles and cares of the world to hold him back or down.
Cleansing our hearts not only cleans up our own life, but it will begin to also help cleanse those around you slowly as they see your transformation.
