A Change of Heart and Spirit

Psalm 51 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 51:10

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

Even David, a man after God’s heart sinned against God, but he recognized that he needed a profound change of heart and spirit and he knew he could not make this change on his own. For out of the heart come evil thoughts–murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. (Matthew 15:19) No matter how much you try to change on your own at best the changes will only be temporary. Only God’s love and mercy can transform a sinful, stubborn heart of stone and only God can truly renew your spirit. If you are ready for a change of heart and spirit, ask the One who created it to change it.

A Bitter Heart

Matthew 12 34.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 12:34

You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good?  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

 

Don’t let evil thoughts and feelings fester in your heart.   If you are holding on to some sort of bitterness try to get to the bottom of what is making you feel this way. Ask God to help you get rid of any resentment and anger you may be holding on to. Eventually, what is in your heart will pour out of your mouth and cause you problems.
