Our Sinful Heart
“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10 (NIV)
The intent of our heart is not holy and prone to do evil, which is why we all need the Spirit of God. We can mean well, we can strive to do well, but the truth is that if left to our own base human desires we will find a way to do wrong. Sinful human nature must be countered with the influence and power of the Holy Spirit through prayer and God’s word.
When you seek the forgiveness of the Lord for whatever sin you may slip on, don’t neglect to ask Him to recreate within you a new heart with a renewed passion to steadfastly walk by faith. That is a prayer the Lord loves to answer.
Let’s pray today that we may not neglect guarding our motive and thoughts with the word of God.
