TOPIC: A Clean Heart

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 119:9-11

How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word.

With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments.

Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.

In Touch Daily Devotional 30th July 2022 MESSAGE

Fulfilling God’s Purpose for our life begins with a clean heart—one that loves the Lord and wants to obey Him. However, we’re all born with a sin nature. Thankfully, though, salvation transforms us (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Jesus’ death on the cross paid the penalty for our transgressions and broke sin’s power over us. By receiving Christ as Savior, we each become a new creation—with a heart sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading and a mind that wants to know the Father better. We also receive the Spirit’s power to deny our selfish desires and obey God. Then we can begin to make use of the capabilities our loving Lord has given us.

But how do we keep our heart clean? The best way is to meditate on Scripture. Doing so helps us discover the areas where we have been faithful and also the places where we’ve veered from His path. Expressing genuine repentance brings God’s forgiveness and cleansing (1 John 1:9). When we strive to keep following the Lord’s ways, we will more easily discern His plan and submit our will to His.

Becoming the person God planned for each of us to be requires an intimate relationship with Him and a desire to obey. Apart from Jesus, we can achieve nothing of lasting value (John 15:5). Cooperating with the Holy Spirit’s transforming work will help us keep our heart clean and open to God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 31-35

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Obeying God’s Word transforms our hearts and enables us to fulfill the plans God has for us.
