Psalm 51:10-13 (NKJV)
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.11 Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.
Every year we go to the doctor for an annual physical. We have our heart checked, blood pressure, blood work, and many other areas. The heart is the key when it is in good condition. When is the last time you did a spiritual check up? You may need a renewal within your heart.
A renewal to get a closer walk with God may be what you need. Your prayer time has now become distraction time and your heart has drifted. You go to church once a month instead of weekly and you do not have the same compassion you had. Your daily quiet time in the Word has become limited instead of unlimited and your joy needs restoring.
God is there for you and His love is always there. Draw near to Him to strengthen your heart. As His love pours into you it will overflow to others. As they see His love in you they will ask questions about your faith. When your heart is right you will teach others in His strength and not yours. When your love for God overflows He will get all the glory as He works through you.
So prayerfully seek Him and ask for a heart check up and you will be blessed.
