Psalm 51:10 
”God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.“ (CSB)

God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. (MSG)

Pure hearts and clean hands are seldom lauded, but by the denizens of heaven, they are applauded. They are also a heavenly requirement. How can we receive the necessary washing and renewal? Pray with King David. (Psalm 51, especially verse 10.)

God creates us with clean hearts. When we dirty them up, he recreates, renews, and restores them. He also sustains them. (See verse 12.)

Jesus said, ”Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God“
(‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭8‬ ‭CSB‬‬.) Someone added, “and they are the only ones who want to.”

True. 

How about you?

(Passing a mirror) And how about me?

The necessary sanitizer is unavailable in little plastic bottles. The soil of a soul is removed only by heavenly help. Some stains resist all remedies. There is a blood that washes white as snow, as clean as clean can be. What Jesus did on the cross truly sets us free from the accursed spots and stains of our sins.

King David was a mess until he came clean. As famous as his sin is his repentance. 

Today’s a good day to come clean with God. He will create in you, at your request, a pure heart and clean hands. (See Psalm 24:4.)

I will confess my sins and receive God’s purifying and cleansing washing.

Our Father, I pray with King David: “Completely wash away my guilt and cleanse me from my sin. . . . Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. . . . Turn your face away from my sins and blot out all my guilt. God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Amen.

Daily D – Isaiah 1:18-20

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land. But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
