Oh Lord, I Need You!
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10
How well do you feed your heart with the word of God? What are those things that can affect the cleanliness of your mind? Or you never think about the pollution of mind that can destroy the soul or ruin daily activities? Today’s verse gives us a clue that a polluted heart needs God’s help to be cleansed and renewed for our good.
Many people are plagued by different things such as depression, anxiety, family burden, failure, and sin, but they never knew that God could help to be cleansed. They wake up every day with a broken heart and have no hope in life. They feel like they can’t find their way out of this and that mess. They don’t know how to get back on track and start living a better life because of the lack of faith or knowledge in God.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
My brother and sister, I want to encourage you that you are not created to go through life alone, but God has made a provision to help you renew and refresh your mind daily. Remember, everything is temporary, and nothing lasts forever. So, if you’re struggling with something, remember that God is with you, and he will never leave you. He has a perfect plan to help you out.
However, you have to believe in Him and trust in His plans, as David did. You have to come to the throne of His Grace with confidence so that you may receive mercy and find grace to help you in times of trouble. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s okay to ask for help when you need it. God knows what we are going through right now, but He needs you to come closer to Him.1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting ALL your anxieties on Him because he cares for you.”
1. Dear Lord, I pray that you will give me a clean heart and renew my broken spirit.
2. Psalm 73:1: Covenant keeping God, come with your perfection, and perfect your will in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
