The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, September 19 2012
Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Psalm 51:10, 12 NLTOne thing about our natural sinful nature is that it is always seeking self-satisfaction, even when doing what appears to be good for others. One of the great refreshments of God's grace is the desire for a new nature, in which only the Lord can provide. For God's grace does not just forgive our sins, it removes the attitude of me first because of God's love found in and through Jesus the Christ. This not being religious at all, gives a freedom to our thinking and emotions to desire a clean heart, to live our lives in such a way that we become living examples of the joy of his grace. Today allow yourself the freedom of his grace to create a clean heart within you, with expressions of thanksgiving. In this place your joy will overflow and you along with those around you will be refreshed, restored and renewed. You will like this day.
