A Clean Heart

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Psalm 51:10

You were created in the image and likeness of God. You were made for God’s fellowship, and your heart can never be satisfied without His communion. Just as iron is attracted to a magnet, the soul in its state of hunger is drawn to God. Though you, like thousands of others, may feel in the state of sin that the world is more alluring and more to your liking, some day—perhaps even now as you read these words—you will acknowledge that there is something deep down inside you which cannot be satisfied by the alloy of earth. Then with David, the Psalmist who had sampled the delicacies of sin and had found them unsatisfying, you will say, “Oh God, my God; early will I seek You: my soul thirsts for You, my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land, where there is no water” (Psalm 63:1). Then the words of Psalm 51:10, might be your words: “Create in me a clean heart, O God.”

Bible Reading

Psalm 51:10-17.


 How I long for You, my God, yet so often my heart is drawn away from Your leading. Like David, I desire a clean heart. I ask this in the Saviour's name. Amen.
