I pray that you are going to receive today's message from the Holy Spirit. I speak blessing of peace upon your life on today.
(Psalms 51:10-12), Create in me a clean heart, O God: and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from they presence; and take not they Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of they salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Woman of God, one thing that I have learned is that we should daily go before the Lord asking Him to create a clean heart within us. The reason is that everyday we have things in our heart that we should not have. It could be places that we go, things that we said and even things that we did not say but thought in our hearts. When you pray, you should always ask for forgiveness of your sins the things that you have done and even the things that you thought in your heart. The bible says that even the things that we think in our hearts is sinning against the Lord.
We should ask God to renew our spirit daily because we will always need our spirit within us to be renewed. You cannot live on yesterday's anointing or renewal you must ask for renewal as often as you ask for the forgiveness of your sins. You need the Lord to cleanse you heart from any evil thoughts and therefore your spirit will be renewed. David is also praying to God that although he has and will mess up, he is praying that God will not take the Holy Spirit away from him. David understood that the Holy Spirit had to stay with him in order for him to live right and be under God's protection. So David is simply saying, "God I know that I do wrong but please don't take your presence from me. David was considered a friend of God, according to the bible. He knew how to repent and how to pray to God for forgiveness, a clean heart and a right spirit.
In order for you to be a living testimony for the Lord, you will have to have a clean heart, which also means that you will be able to have compassion for other people. Your heart will not be bitter towards those whom have harmed you or caused great despair in your life. As long as you have the Holy Spirit within you, you will always live under the Lord's divine protection.
A child of God knows no true nor solid joy but the joy of God's salvation, joy in God his Savior and in the hope of eternal life. God will uphold you when you are ready to fall, either into sin or into despair; Lord sustain me; my own spirit is not sufficient; if I be led to myself, I shall certainly sink. We have to seek the Lord daily because sin is always going to be lurking at our door. David understood that therefore he knew that he needed to seek after the Lord to keep him from falling into sin. He knew that if he had to do it under his own power that he would never be able to sustain himself, he would certainly sink.
We will always mess up but the good news is that if we ask the Holy Spirit to go before us, making our way straight and upright before the Lord. Therefore daily prayer for the Lord to create in us a clean heart, renew in us a right spirit, restore upon us the joy of the fact that Jesus Christ has given us salvation. PRAISE THE LORD! AMEN!
